comment Loopback interface on Linux catches all loopback traffic
My Max OS X box still has a netmask of /8 I think: inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 0xff000000

I can see that routing means that 127.0.0.0/8 should alway go to the loopback interface, but what I found strange is that Linux responds to ICMP echo requests for all of these addresses rather than just the one the interface is configured for.
