Adding to PATH in ~/.alias or ~/.bashrc causes triple additions?

I'm pretty sure this used to work on 7.2:

devcp@chrome:~> cat ~/.alias
#umask is important for clickpatrol file permissions
umask 002

export PATH

But look what it's causing now:

evcp@chrome:~">devcp@chrome:~> echo $PATH

BTW the same thing happens if I stick that in ~/.bashrc, also it doens't matter if I add to the begining or the end of PATH

Why on earth is it prepending the new dirs 3 times?
