Actually, I didn't mean appending the domain name onto your service
name.  Oracle has (used to have?) a global_names scheme that *looks*
like domain names but aren't necessarily the same.  Check the
sqlnet.ora file to see if you have one defined.  SQL*Plus will likely
tack that onto the end automatically.
