Problem with next/prev links and redirected domains

Description

Fundamentally, I have a domain (alivad.com) which redirects via DNS to my
ISP web space (http://home.exetel.com.au/davidmwilliams). I set the
WordPress URI to http://www.alivad.com and the Blog address to
http://www.alivad.com - both are the same.

This works, in that WordPress shows links for posts, categories, pages,
etc in the format I want, namely http://www.alivad.com/?blah

HOWEVER the previous and next page links at the bottom of the page are
showing wrongly as http://www.alivad.com/davidmwilliams/index.php?paged=x
(and, of course, these are invalid addresses).

I can't understand why the 'davidmwilliams' part is being added like that.
It seems the next/prev page links are working out the address by a mixture
of the blog address and the physical underlying directory. I am surmising
it uses different code to generate the link than as used for posts,
categories, etc.

Closing as INVALID.

What you are doing is not what these WordPress settings are meant to address.

Set the blog address to where the blog actually is served, ie http://home.exetel.com.au/davidmwilliams/
