I can make a very small scene to demonstrate the issue with the radial pattern,
although I think the extant thread is kinda self-explanatory, and WFP agrees
with the proposed mathematical solution.

All the other things have to deal with source code I haven't looked through or
would likely be able to competently suggest code solutions for.

So here is a list of what I have found / can remember:

creating an array of arrays, and then trying to access an uninitialized element
of that data structure.

A declare without the leading # works

radial pattern

suggested fix (coded in SDL function syntax)
#declare Angle = function (XX,ZZ) {atan2 (XX, ZZ)-(pi/2)}
#declare Adjusted = function (XX,ZZ) {select (Angle(XX,ZZ),  Angle(XX,ZZ)+tau,
Angle(XX, ZZ))}
#declare FreqPhase = function (XX, ZZ, F, P) {mod ((P*tau+Adjusted (XX, ZZ))*F,
tau)/tau}
#declare Radial = function (XX, ZZ, F, P) {select (XX*ZZ,  FreqPhase
(XX,ZZ,F,P), 0, FreqPhase (XX,ZZ,F,P))}
