Seeing that part isn't enough to tell you anything, you would need to show the whole code..
But if those two lines are within the alias "aRepeat", then it's likely your issue, an alias cannot call itself.
Though, after testing this syntax (using a command doesn't behave this way), mIRC seems to ignore the call and simply return $null:

Code:
alias testing {
echo -a called
echo -a call again $testing
echo -a end calling
return test
}
//echo -a > $testing will simply display 'called', 'call again', 'end calling' and finally '> test' because the alias is originally called with //echo -a >.
So actually, that can't be your case here, you must have something else going on.
