I have created a number of new zones on a HP/Brocade switch (more details on SAN below) and added all new zones into a new config. cfgsave was not a problem and both cghshow and zoneshow shows everything correctly. However when I try to activate the new configuration I get:
Zone transaction aborted - Bad zone config
Old zoning is maintained and all hosts see their storage as expected.

Do you have any other meesages in the errdump output?
You should remove and delete your new configured zones/alias from your zoning DB and try to activate the original/old one to verify that the configuration had no issue.
If you can activate your cfg then create the zone and alias once more and try to activate.
If the error still occure you will have a problem. Check all your zones and alias definitions if you have any wrong charaters or typos in.
I hope this helps,
