in global_settings  "max_trace" should be "max_trace_level"


in global_settings  assumed_gamma statement should not be followed by a semicolon


in global_settings  "assummed_gamma" should be spelled "assumed_gamma"


in all files other than _empty.pov the parse stops at the lines containing "[frame_number-1]" I'm guessing it should be "[frame_number]-1"  
This task depends upon

Corrected reported typos in scene files, however I could not confirm the problem reported with the portfolio scene files. If I’m not mistaken they are to be run as if they were an animation. While cd’ed to the portfolio directory I was able to run ALL of the ini files to completion.

For example:
