Make sure you have NOT un-commented the semicolon.

Without the semicolon, POV-Ray will continue scanning for an opening 
square bracket. The next `#local` is /not/ sufficient for POV-Ray to 
recognize that you're done declaring the array; instead, POV-Ray will 
just postpone parsing the array declaration, expecting it to be 
continued after the second `#local`. So you'll end up with an attempt to 
assign an array element before the array even exists, and POV-Ray gets 
all confused.
