Hmm, I suspect the resolution to the problem might well be that's it's
been lying around ready to go off (in the sense of a bomb), but didn't do
so until it was perturbed somehow.  For example, it might always have
been run from a compiled file until it needed recompiling, and you
never tried running it uncompiled with the alias in place until that
happened.  Or something like that.
