Are you talking bash as sh or bash as bash? Bash as sh will expand
those aliases. But you should study
http://tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/aliases.html for all your scripts. Are
there environment variables that could affect the outcome?
Since the OP has a #! /bin/bash line at the top of his script, I think
he means bash. However, running the script with sh explicitly does act
as you describe, e.g.: sh myscript x y z ... in contrast to: myscript x y z.
