On the actual issue, unsure.

Looks render block related. Does using a single thread (+wt1) make a 

I vaguely recall setting all three directional components to 0 in a user 
defined camera, renders black - or transparent if using +ua. However, I 
didn't test my recollection.

Only other thought is that some apparent POV-Ray keywords are in fact 
declared as identifiers (IDs) at start up(a). Two such identifiers are 
'image_width' and 'image_height'. Keywords that are in fact IDs can be 
whacked by users in their SDL.
