I don't know what would cause that, though, I'll leave that up to
people who know Nmap's internals.

IIRC you always see it when doing a SYN and service scan against the localhost on Windows. It'll skip the port scan as it can't do the SYN scan against localhost, but the service scan will then run and presumably assign the ports for all the services as unknown (I've not looked at the internals either). It'd be nice if it could skip the service scan if it knows the port scan was skipped for that host.

I'm scanning my own Windows XP and get too much ports open. It's
happen even in a fresh Windows XP without any other software except
the mainboard driver. Here is the scan result in xml. I'm using nmap
5.51 in Windows XP SP 2.
