When talking about a concern that someone has had over a long period in the past, it seems to me that the imperfect would have the appropriate aspect. The
aorist is more for singular actions or events. So I don't quite see your point.
If I'm right about that, and I may well be wrong, but if I am right about that, I would then ask whether it is possible that the οὐδὲν in the sense of "not once"
takes the concern and makes it singular (the "once") and brings in the aorist that way.
