action JavaScript: including libraries was blocking Tasker builtin function definitions
action Array Process: Remove Duplicates was buggy sometimes dependent on array content

click on AB item in scene, %scene_name wasn’t being populated in resulting task, other params were wrong, changed to %item_label and %item_index
