[opensuse-factory] getent hosts localhost -> ::1

After upgrade to Tumbleweed 20200304 host name localhost insists on IPv6
address no matter what's in /etc/hosts:

# getent hosts localhost
::1 localhost

Relevant lines from /etc/hosts attached below.

How can I disable that without completely switching off IPv6?

Ciao, Michael.
