If a data source (in my case a Postgis table) is present in a QGIS project - and the data structure was modified outside QGIS (e.g. in pgAdmin), the attribute index (for aliases, edit types, etc.) gets out of sync.
There should either be:
- automatic detection of changes in datastructure
- or a manual re-read of the data-structure with a button in the layer properties

It appears that attributes get reread correctly, but the aliases can get out of sync. I may need to do more investigations to see if this also happens with newer projects or if it is a migration issue from older versions.
