Are you trying to set the alias of MSN or non-MSN accounts?

If you're trying to set the alias of non-MSN accounts and it doesn't
work, that probably means the prpl (libpurple protocol plugin) for that
protocol doesn't support setting your own alias yet. As of libpurple
2.7.0, the MSN prpl was the only one to support this.

If other prpls are enhanced to work the same way as the MSN one (if that
hasn't already been done, it would be a libpurple feature request), then
they should work in Haze.
