This works like a charm for me:

12> TabDef=[{record_name,domain}].
13> mnesia:create_table(school,TabDef).
14> mnesia:transaction(fun() ->mnesia:write(school, {domain, 3,4}, write) end).

Maybe you are not having #domain record with exactly
two attributes. Since you are not specifying the attributes,
2 is the deafult:

mnesia:transaction(fun() ->mnesia:write(school, {domain, 3,4,5}, write) end).

Checkout the {attributes , A} flag to mnesia:create_table/2

Probably the same problem here ??
