Editing DNS Zone - Entries automatically appended with hostname

I am trying to setup easy urls with google apps (mail.domain.com).

In order to get mail.domain.com to point to google's servers I need to edit the CNAME entry for mail to point to ghs.google.com, but everytime I save it's saved as ghs.google.com.domain.com.

How would I get it to stay as ghs.google.com?

I've tried adding and modifying the entry, with the same result.

Thanks!

Make sure you put a trailing dot or bind will assume its a subdomain of the zone.
ie

ghs.google.com.
