Character restrictions on alias names
Finally figured out why nothing was working properly (on a new firewall install). I had used hyphens ( - ) in a few places in my alias names. When you reload the rules the NAT portion of the rules interpret that hyphen as a "to". http-https becomes "http to https", in essence. Remove the hyphens from the alias names, and everything's beautiful again.
I'm now using the underscore ( _ ) as a delimeter in my alias names, and it works fine.

What version is this? Can you replicate it with the latest RELENG_1_2 snapshot? If so I'll open a ticket, don't have time to verify it myself at the moment.
I'll try it out on the latest snapshot sometime today.
Ahh, the latest snapshot won't let you use hyphens, only underscores. That's a good thing :)
