Nice detective work there.  I can confirm this in Debian's bash 5.0.3:

unicorn:~$ alias foo='a=() b=""
for i in 1; do echo hi; done'
unicorn:~$ foo
bash: syntax error near unexpected token `;'
unicorn:~$ alias bar='a=()
for i in 1; do echo hi; done'
unicorn:~$ bar

Interesting. Thanks for the simple reproducer, both of you. I'll take a
look after bash-5.1 is out.
