On "Remove duplicate aliases" I used Special:SetAliases (turn off Javascript) to create duplicates by removing array_unique in line 334 of Entity.php. After that I used ordinary JS-driven UI-editing to verify that the item with duplicates was available and editable. The duplicates was then edited or removed without any errors.
