I figured that out in the end, as the problem 'fixed itself' over the weekend after nobody
had been accessing it. I figured it must look at the URL.

Thanks anyway though.

Roller uses information from the request to determine the URL, so
Tomcat or whatever your app server is telling Roller that the URL
starts with "localhost"

I think you have two ways to fix this:
1) figure out how to make your app server or application server use
the right hostname
2) set the base path of Roller on the Server Admin page
