The alias problem is fixable by editing lib_tix.tcl file. Find the
procedure "vTcl:lib_tix:dump_widget_opt" At the bottom of
the procedure are the lines:
append result [vTcl:dump_widget_bind $target $basename]
return $result

add the following line above the "append result" line:
append result [vTcl:dump_widget_alias $target $basename]

This fixed the alias problem I was having with tix label entry
widgets.
