I do this in OSX and everything has been working fine since:
1) In the IDE goto communications/connect over TCP address and put this there: "127.0.0.1:12345"
2) In the terminal type "ls /dev/cu*" and copy the device "cu.usbmodemXXxxx", then type this:
nc -k -l 12345 > /dev/cu.usbmodemXXxxx < /dev/cu.usbmodemXXxxx
3) Select TCP port 127.0.0.1:12345 when Connect asks.
Sometimes, after a reset or disconnect the name of the device changes, if you can no longer connect this way, hit ctrl-c to cancel nc, and repeat from 2).
It has worked wonders for me in my Macs.
