"Relate to..." indexed search doesn't use aliases

      Description

      Examples...

      Normal indexed search for "John McGeogh" correctly gives 100 score for "John McGeoch"

      http://musicbrainz.org/search?query=John+McGeogh&type=artist
      http://musicbrainz.org/artist/482abb8f-ef8f-4d20-a1b1-84033cf559d7/aliases

      And for "Alan Dias", "Allan Dias".

      http://musicbrainz.org/search?query=Alan+Dias&type=artist
      http://musicbrainz.org/artist/ddcb075c-d23e-446b-ace8-3f914ffb10da/aliases

      However, trying to use the aliases in a "Relate To..." indexed search, such as from a work, doesn't show the artist (at least in the first few pages). Direct searches do work.
