you have a domain name canonicalization problem.
www.example.com is not the same domain as but rather a subdomain of example.com.

The analytics code in www.example.com and example.com are exactly same. So even if there is a canonicalization issue, Google analytics should treat both as a single account/ domain.

how does your server redirect a request for example.com to www.example.com?

Does the information at this link (below) help? It seems to cover the situation for any analytics program, although the solution they offer is unique to the tool they are discussing.
I am sure this has been discussed here on WW also, but I can't find anything just now.

Either way you should have it 301 to one or the other.

That's how it's supposed to be; it's a different hostname
www. is a sub-domain of example.com, making it a different "host" than non-www pages.

i just put in a filter to exclude any referrals from my own domain...
