Sharepoint lookback of death on 2010

After playing with Sharepoint 2010 beta using only the same machine names I now created a new web application and new site collection but the Site collection didn’t want to open as it prompted me for Login and Password and would not accept any of the login I typed, even though the logins were Site Collection administrator.
I thought I was going mad since it was exactrly the same steps as 2007 and same as when I created the http://machinename which worked fine… finally I stumbled uppon a reminder : disabling the loopback in Regedit that I forgot about (or thought 2010 would be more clever).
note : This behaviour only occurs on local machine.

Thanks to Michael Nemtsev who blogged about it for 2007 which came up on Google results…
