I'm using the theme on a site that do not use the slideshow. The feature was then disabled on the theme configuration page, but all support code are being still included in the output, making it unnecessarily big and being a future potential conflict (e.g. use of a local jQuery cycle plugin). Since the enable/disable switch is there, the module should refrain from outputting any code related to the slideshow when this feature is disabled.
Attached is a patch that fix this issue. The patch itself is very small and straightforward (just an "if" test was added), though the patch looks big due to indenting.
