Perhaps I'm missing something but why is that Alias directive there?
Looks to me like you've got two thing serving the same URL path
("/alias") though I have no idea which take precedence. I also don't
quite see how that would cause a 301 but I always try to remove the
extraneous stuff first and see if the problem is still there. If
there's actually a reason for that Alias, my mistake...
