This may have been allowed to slide because Hermione was in a location filled with other witches and wizards, and [[The Trace]] would not have been able to catch her. It is also possible that Oculus Reparo is considered such a mundane, harmless spell that its use was not enough to trigger a violation. Hermione's use of the spell in the first film was permittable as students are allowed to perform magic on the train. In the earlier films, the spells seem to be almost all long, two-word incantations, so the 'reparo' spell may have just been modified to have an 'oculus' in front of it.
