Keep in mind that a lot of software will re-write hostnames into their 
canonical form.  Most MTAs do this by default (based on a certain reading of 
the RFCs), and I would not be at all surprised to find that web browsers and 
web servers would do the same.

So, the lesson is that before you start blaming anything else, you might 
want to try removing the CNAME alias entirely, and set up a plain A record 
for that name.
