Defect/Enhancement Number
Note that this behavior is caused because the option  "Administration->Settings->Advanced->System->Site Url Settings->Enable non-default Site URL Settings" is checked. This option will create an new section in the SystemConfig.config file (~/App_Data/Sitefinity/Configuration/) like this:

<siteUrlSettings replaceSiteUrl="True" siteUrl="http://thehost" />

The effect of this is that every page Url will be replace with the value defined in the mentioned section in the Advanced Settings.

Consider deselecting this option and clearing the value that is in "The Host". A restart of the application pool is needed.
