I use it, and it's normal. It's actually done by /usr/bin/ndiswrapper.
It adds the alias directive there once. If you modify it, or do
nothing, the exact same command will return with a "already contains
alias directive" line, or something of the sort.

So change it to wlan1 and then reinstall, it should not be overwritten.
