That could be caused by someone mapping certain domains to 127.0.0.1 in their local DNS service,
which when returned would cause your browser or http-proxy to request a document from localhost.
I used to map doubleclick.net to 127.0.0.1 in my router, for example.
Some malware and anti-malware software makes that kind of mapping in the Windows hosts file.
Thus i don't think a Tor node is doing it, though from a client point of view
one might consider a Tor exit node and its DNS as a single service.
Perhaps it could be logged at the exit node itself as a possible misconfiguration warning.
You can see your current exit node using Vidalia.
I don't know how to find out past exit nodes, or if it is a bad idea to keep that kind of info around.
