Please check and see whether U have the lo device up and
running in ur system by doing an 'ifconfig'.

Helix Gnome uses the loop-back device and a similar problem
was fixed in my friend's Debian system by getting the lo
device section in /etc/network/interfaces uncommented/added
'iface lo inet loopback'. Restart networking & inetd services.
YMMV and I maybe totally wrong here......
