When I instantiate SOAPClient with the following, the soap client times out:

When I do it with the IP as part of the url it works:

This was not an issue in Windows XP.  I am thinking that the problem has to do with the ipv6 protocol that when pinged returns ip in the form of fe80::640c:2041:aea0:f210%10, but even if I turn it off when I do a ping I get something of the form 2002:8648:620::8648:620.  
Do you think this is a problem with how SoapClient resolves the ip, or it's a configuration problem on my part?

thank you for your help.

The same problem exists on 5.2.9-1 and Windows Vista 64.  kriggs circumvention of replacing localhost with an IP address works also.

There is no bug, IPv6 is enabled by default on Vista and on demand (using a separate install pack) on XP.

Open the hosts file (c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts) and comment the ::1 line.
