Another alias entry that fails to save is:
  Name:             Value:
  program-bugs      "|/usr/local/bin/program-bug-tracker bug 256"

notice that the double quotes are required for the piped command with arguments.

This bug is blocking some automated regression tests. Can you please have
someone on your team take a look at the issue.  Thank you!!!

Charles does not want this worked on until the feature is back on the road map, removing the automation blocker tag.

Temporarily adding the keyword "SubBug" so we can be sure we have accounted for all the bugs.

new = Tracking + FutureFeature + SubBug

making sure we're not missing any bugs in rhq_triage
