My first though is take more water with it. (Speaking personally, of 
course :-) )

Make sure that you are using frame_number, not clock. (Less calculations 
for you.)

Find out what is happening by using #debug.
Output your frame_number, the called include file and the object, in the 
include file.
Maybe add a #debug "This is Include NNN \n" to the first few files to 
make sure that they are being called by your master file.

 From there we start fault finding.
