Incorrect search results when using the This Site or This List options

There are several reasons for a search to bring wrong results in MOSS. Here is one incident we have experienced lately:
The Web application is named with the internal server name and so is the Search in Content Sources which is configured to use the address http://servername/.
There is a translation in the DNS server to http://www.myinternetaddress.com/ which lands in the same place. If you change the Content Sources definition to the DNS name you may affect the Search Scopes, which in turn will bring wrong results.
The remedy is to change the address back to the original one.
