Safari not honoring "bypass proxy settings for these hosts & domains"

I have a proxy set up for HTTP and HTTPS. The proxy runs on another machine on my network.

Safari and the latest nightly WebKit build do not honor the hosts and domains listed in "bypass proxy settings for these hosts & domains" in System Preferences.

I have "localhost" in this list and am doing some local development with a server running on my machine on port 3000. When I try to go to http://localhost:3000, I instead get an error page from my proxy, telling me that nothing is listening on that port. This makes perfect sense, since once the request gets to the proxy, localhost refers to the machine the proxy is running on, not my local desktop.

The problem here is that Safari shouldn't be sending that request to the proxy at all, but it is. Even restarting Safari doesn't work.
