Use "type l" immediately after sourcing the .bashrc file.  Then do it
again, then do your cd, then do it a third time.

If the .bashrc is simply malformed, then the alias ought not to work
even the first time.  But you reported that it does work once.

If the alias is set immediately after "source", but then goes away
immediately, then you're probably clobbering it in a DEBUG trap, or

If the alias persists after the first type command, but goes away when
you cd, then you've probably got an alias or function overriding the
cd command.
