        We need just a bit more information to help I'm afraid.  A gdb
back trace would be very helpful (if you're running a *nix variant).  From
my knowledge, most of the errors come from not creating the alias
directories - though mostly that made it not save, instead of crashing.

        If you don't have any other information, you can always insert
logging messages to determine which line it crashes on (I'd start in your
alias loading function).  If we knew the code around which it crashes on
we'd be better equipped to help.
