I took a look at your scroller and it looks pretty fishy to me... Probably some
enormous memory leakage, 'cause your declaring variables every time the timer 
updateds.  I wrote my own one using a different & faster technique, it
didn't crash 
so far :) You can use it if you like. It's been done one time too many.
