Problem logging into Magento after installation

If you have just installed the Magento online-shopping cart system onto your "localhost" and are having trouble when you log into the backend-part:

Try replacing:
http://localhost/<path_to_magento>/index.php/admin/

with:
http://127.0.0.1/<path_to_magento>/index.php/admin/

The reason for this bug seems to be that Magento does not recognise "localhost" as being the equivalent to "127.0.0.1" (the localhost's IP Address) and only "127.0.0.1" seems to work. This seems to be a strange bug that I have never experienced in other applications.
