Error raised for resources with identical aliases, but different titles #499

a3d3cbc (I think) introduced a regression building catalogs which contain multiple resources with different titles, but identical aliases.

exec { 'foo_bar_1':
  command => '/bin/echo foo bar',
exec { 'foo_bar_2':
  command => '/bin/echo foo bar',

rspec-puppet would add identical aliases to the catalog for the two execs, causing a duplicate and the following error:

   Cannot alias Exec[foo_bar_2] to "/bin/echo foo bar" at spec/fixtures/modules/relationships/manifests/titles.pp:15; resource ["Exec", "/bin/echo foo bar"] already declared at spec/fixtures/modules/relationships/manifests/titles.pp:12

This exec pattern is used in puppetlabs-postgresql here:
