Default postfix aliases configuration error


postfix seems to be ignoring my aliases file. There are no errors output when postfix starts, nor any errors logged while it is running. I'm pretty sure I will have an error somewhere but can't see the wood for the trees.

queue_directory = /var/spool/postfix
command_directory = /usr/local/sbin
daemon_directory = /usr/local/libexec/postfix
data_directory = /var/db/postfix
append_dot_mydomain = no
mail_owner = postfix
myhostname = coppermine.abcdef.co.uk
myorigin = $myhostname
inet_interfaces =, localhost
mydestination = $myhostname, coppermine, coppermine.intranet.abcdef.co.uk, localhost.        $mydomain, localhost
unknown_local_recipient_reject_code = 550
mynetworks =,,
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases
transport_maps = hash:/usr/local/etc/postfix/transport
smtpd_client_restrictions = permit_mynetworks, reject
message_size_limit = 52428800
mailbox_size_limit = 5242880000
debug_peer_level = 2
debugger_command =
     ddd $daemon_directory/$process_name $process_id & sleep 5
sendmail_path = /usr/local/sbin/sendmail
newaliases_path = /usr/local/bin/newaliases
mailq_path = /usr/local/bin/mailq
setgid_group = maildrop
html_directory = /usr/local/share/doc/postfix
manpage_directory = /usr/local/man
sample_directory = /usr/local/etc/postfix
readme_directory = /usr/local/share/doc/postfix

coppermine# postmap -q root hash:/etc/aliases
and, finally the log output when I try to send a mail to root:

Someone please put me out of my misery,
