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.
