Bash Version: 2.05b
Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release

        alias -p with NAMES generates a complete alias list and then
        appends the aliases, specified as NAMES, after this list.
        I would expect 'alias -p NAME1 NAME2' to behave as
        'alias NAME1 NAME2'

        bash#2.05b$ alias -p
        alias cp='cp -i'
        alias mv='mv -i'
        alias rm='rm -i'
        alias vi='vim'
        bash#2.05b$ alias -p cp mv
        alias cp='cp -i'
        alias mv='mv -i'
        alias rm='rm -i'
        alias vi='vim'
        alias cp='cp -i'
        alias mv='mv -i'
