Interesting.  I forgot to mention that a likely workaround (in 7.4.*
anyway) is to use CIDR-style specification of host+mask: "127.0.0.1/32"
instead of "127.0.0.1   255.255.255.255".  That would avoid calling
getaddrinfo for the troublesome value.  But it would be nice to verify
whether this is a Solaris bug or our own fault.
