Re: git alias for "status" not working

I'm not sure how to debug this one.  I have a ~/.gitconfig that sets up
an alias for "git status" using the simple rule:

    st = status

Yet, something is failing when I run it from the command line:

$ git st
[nothing happens]
$ git status
On branch 3.3-dev-davidd
Your branch is ahead of 'origin/3.3-dev-davidd' by 2 commits.
[... etc ...]

Any ideas?

st is also a prefix of "stash".  Maybe it does not like aliases
that are prefixes of other commands?
