Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think if you look at the site 
from external to your computer, you will see a difference.

Putting it another way, accessing it via http://localhost will bypass 
the published version and show you the unpublished version.  From some 
other computer http://cms.gaertner.de (or whatever your computer is 
called) will see the published version.

This may have been a hack to make development quicker.
