Sharepoint KPI - The SharePoint list URL does not resolve to a SharePoint list

I have a sharepoint site with an issue tracking list, with which I'm trying to set up KPI. I've created the KPI list, but when I add a new indicator using data in a sharepoint list, and attempt to select the issue tracking list I get the following error:

The SharePoint list URL does not resolve to a SharePoint list. Specify a valid URL for a SharePoint list.

It even suggests I verify the URL by clicking, which does indeed resolve to a SharePoint list. So I tried setting up an indicator for any of the lists and I get the same error.

Any pointers as to what could be going on here?

is the URL added in your Access Alternate Mappings?

Since I do not know what this is, unless it is done by default, I would say no. I didn't configure access alternate mappings, put it that way.

How do I do this, and what exactly is it?

To access Alternate Access Mapping:

1.  Go to central administration>operations
2.  in the global configuration page, click Alternate Access Mapping
3.  You should see a list of URLs there.  Your sharepoint URL should registered there.  

If not, you can follow the instructions here in this site:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263208%28office.12%29.aspx
