XF 1.4 non-www appears as duplicate site

#1
Hello.
1) I have a wordpress/forum setup where the forum is a subfolder i.e www.mysite.com/forum.
2) On my blog .htaccess file, I set up 301 redirect so whenever someone clicks mysite.com/forum they're automatically redirected to www.mysite.com/forum.
3) However, when I check my referral traffic (in wordpress, for example) I occasionally see some clicks from mysite.com/forum (non-www). When I click that, my forum is seen as a completely duplicate site, with me not being logged in at all.
4)I should note this happens only with the forum part of the site, not the blog part.
5)Google Analytics whines that I have redundant host names (probably because of the above).
6)Below is my forum .htaccess file (from the /forum subfolder). How should I fix this?
