Aliases is resolved by the engine in v1.5. To establish a server attachment,
the client library tries the remote subsystems with a given connection
string. On posix, there cannot be a ":" drive separator like on win32 and
it's considered to be a TCP/IP connection string, hence the failure you
observe. But your example looks quite weird to me as you mix pathnames for
different OS. If you want a path substitution, both paths should belong to
the same OS (the server one).

BTW, I think this issue shouldn't exist on v2.0. Could you please check?
