Problem with next/prev links and redirected domains

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/ as Moshu describes in http://wordpress.org/support/topic/98861
