Ok it seems that the right fix for this is to correct your hostname :

Michael -


Please any of the following to your hosts file (/etc/hots on Linux, C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts on Windows):

127.0.0.1   magento.localhost.com www.localhost.com
and use magento.localhost.com or www.localhost.com for your local installations.

Will an update be released to fix this?

No, we (I mean developers of ecommerce applications in general) should care more of our customers’ live sites security, than of typing a few extra chars browser address bar in local development environment.
