Sporadic syntax errors - help?

I've been writing up a quest macro for fun and learning the eventMacro system, and have encountered an occasional problem. My macros:

Code: Select all

automacro onKill {
    SimpleHookEvent target_died
    call checkQuestCompletion 

macro checkQuestCompletion {
    if ($.SimpleHookEventLastMonster =~ /Ghoul|Jakk|Nightmare/) goto checkCompletion
        if (&questCompleteCount(62672,62673,62674) == 3) goto turnIn
        do ai manual
        do move geffen 77 76
        do talknpc 75 78 r1 r1
        do talknpc 75 78 r0 r3
        do ai auto
About 80% of the time, it works with no issue. Sometimes, however, I receive a syntax error on the following line:

Code: Select all

 if ($.SimpleHookEventLastMonster =~ /Ghoul|Jakk|Nightmare/) goto checkCompletion
I thought initially that the SimpleHookEvent might be triggering but not populating the $.SimpleHookEventLastMonster variable... but if I log that variable to the console, it hasn't been blank yet.

Is there something that I'm missing?

The code is working, as I said before... I just would like to remove the sporadic errors, if possible.
