libmysql won't connect to localhost but ODBC will

I'm pulling my hair out on this one. I've got a simple test app written two ways. One using the ODBC connector (v5.1.8) and the other with libmysql (v6.0.2).

The test app just tries to connect to the database and reports success/failure and then exits. When I'm running on Win7 Pro 64bit, the ODBC version can connect to the mysql server running on localhost but the libmysql one cannot. Both can connect to remote mysql servers (both Linux & Win7), it is just localhost that's giving me fits.

Mysqld is running on the Win7 machine, ODBC can connect to it. I can connect to it remotely from the Linux box so port 3306 is open in the windows firewall. I can connect to it via the windows command line.

Any thoughts on why libmysql can connect just fine to a remote machine but not to localhost?
