Vortex skin fix

Zsigri Gyula started the discussion on the Winamp Enthusiasts forum FB group, but I get it back here since it's more practical (it will end up there anyway..).

Amazing skin Vortex seems to be throwing a really big error (crashing Winamp on start or playback). managed to track down the error but can't fix it so far:

On player_normal.xml, this script is called:

code:
<script id="draw" file="scripts/draw_r.maki"/>


The script is throwing some timer error on line 185:

So, it's the "pulseback" light what's interferring when starting playback or even the skin sometimes. Anyone up for the challenge to fix it?

Commenting out the draw_r.maki script in player-normal.xml fixes the crash at the price of losing backlight visualization.

PHP Code:
<!-- script id="draw" file="scripts/draw_r.maki"/ -->

Yeah I know, but that's not a proper fix.. I think it can be relatively easy to solve if I could just find how to disable the chained calls to the timer (that line 185 in draw_r.m, which seems to contain the issue, like DrO suggested)..

PS/EDIT: Plus, having the backlight constantly on may be annoying for some users..
