Turns out that by default on Win7 machines, localhost resolves to ::1, which is the IPv6 version of the loopback address. You can either connect to 127.0.0.1 instead (could have sworn I'd tested that) or edit the windows hosts file (c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts) to redefine localhost back to 127.0.0.1
