Sure I should be waiting for the experts, but :-)
If you run "domainname" in the shell, does it print your domain? If
not, you can do e.g. "domainname bluetail.com" (as root) to set it.
If that diagnosis was right, I think the persistent fix is to put a
line like "domain bluetail.com" at the top of /etc/resolv.conf
(NB: 'erl -name joe' works on R9B on my machine)
