Perhaps I was in error on this one.  The last time I executed the

been when I executed updatedb... by typing out the entire 
command line.  But then if there had been no change since 
running updatedb, executing the alias probably wouldn't show any 
hard drive activity. Right??  Anyway, the alias does appear to 
work.  I just tried it again.  Sorry to have bothered you.
