config_GetInt() is wrong, as the input item might override the configuration 
value. var_CreateGetInteger() would be wrong, as it would create a new 
variable, hence preventing a later change of the variable on the input item 
from propagating. var_GetInteger() would not work as the variable does not 
exist on the demux object.

So... I'm afraid accessing the skip-frame variable that way cannot work 
properly. Maybe the logic should be entirely rewritten??
