Also, I seem to get a rawml file whether I include the -r switch or not.
You shouldn't use last names as aliases in general, unless they are the only person with that last name or if there's normally a title in front within the book that you can include ("Mr. Rutledge"). The aliases are just another string to search for, so if you use just the name "Rutledge", it will match any occurrence of that string. You would end up having your Amanda Rutledge entry showing all excerpts that contain "Rutledge" whether they were her or Jack. It's not a perfect system by any means.
Looks like i set it to save the rawml by default, was supposed to be changed before I upload the new version. Thanks
