After a closer look, I found chromium being no longer able to cope with
an IPv6 localhost :(

	Unable to connect to the proxy server
	(and making suggestions that are not applicable)

I had to modify /etc/hosts (and comment out IPv6):

---	localhost


# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
#::1     localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
#ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
#ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
