The "problem" is actually a handy feature which looks like a bug when you
don't know what happens. If you type "repeat" and a return, the "end repeat"
is automatically filled in, because the repeat has to end somewhere.

The solution is very simple: don't position the cursor before line two, but
after line one. Then you begin with a return and then you type "on repeat".

BTW, don't you just mean "repeat"? Because when you write "on repeat", you
are making a new handler called "repeat", while you probably just want to
have something repeated...
