If the first argument to the @test has the hyphen in the text the keys for both tests get treated the same, so although the alias should make the xrefitem keys, testSBUR-87YKDP and testSBUR-883CV7 only one entry gets made; the first one. If the source is changed to @test{SBUR87YKDP} and @test{SBUR883CV7} the documentation works correctly.

I assume that the - in the key is causing SBUR-87YKDP and SBUR-883CV7 to be treated the same.
