well, yes You're right about that, the previous 
version of that declaration was without the 'var',
i added var after this bug came up - i tried
everything to correct this :/. but that's not
the cause of my problem - anyway i'll change it
back to the previous form i.e. without 'var'.

(currently i have added 'Write;' without any
 arguments, there is no output, code works but
 it's still not right - i don't want any Write :/)

I guess it's a bit like a problem i had a long time ago
the code 'crashed' FPU (if it's possible), and just adding
delay(1) to the main processing loop helped.

Still waiting for some help.
