Binding ssh to a loopback address

I was trying to forward a remote port to one at local (but not
127.0.0.1) by doing :
ssh -b 127.0.0.2 -L80:localhost:80 remotehost
but got :
ssh: connect to host d2 port 80: No route to host
everything works fine without the "-b 127.0.0.2" option, and I tried a
few 127.0.0.* addresses but all apart from 127.0.0.1 had the same error.
I am using
OpenSSH_4.0p1, OpenSSL 0.9.7g 11 Apr 2005
on Cygwin / Windows 2000
Did I miss anything (like setting up specific entries for the route
table or installing extra driver) before running the ssh client?
