I've had a second report of this issue so I want to reopen the bug for discussion.
The core problem appears to be that some shells and installers (for git I think) create
The solution is to rename
However I am not proposing that at this time, I would like to leave this issue open for others to comment so I can get a feel for just how big of an issue this potential conflict is.
I ran into this today with the prezto config framework for ZSH. All I had to do to fix it was to rename the aliases from gb* to gbr*. It was easy for me because I have forked the prezto repo, but the standard install procedure for most ZSH config frameworks is to clone it into $HOME, which would make the situation a little more complicated.
Renaming the gb command is not necessary; users should update their aliases.
As per my other comment, one of the most common causes is the "git" plugin
(I also wouldn't rename the tool either!)
