PublishPlugin ignores VIEW_TEMPLATE

I'm trying to get PublishPlugin (Version: 6036 (2010-01-12)) to use a VIEW_TEMPLATE while publishing a topic (using Content Generator: file).

When running PublishPlugin to publish this particular topic (or the whole web containing this topic), I get the following debug output:
TestTopic21: has a VIEW_TEMPLATE 'TestTopic21View'
TestTopic21: Rev 1 published
TestTopic21ViewTemplate: Rev 1 published

However, the resulting HTML file is created without the content of the VIEW_TEMPLATE (when viewed in the wiki, the VIEW_TEMPLATE is used).

For the record: The topic TestTopic21 has the following content:
---+ !PublishContrib VIEW_TEMPLATE Test

   * Set VIEW_TEMPLATE = TestTopic21View

And the VIEW_TEMPLATE (TestTopic21ViewTemplate) has the following content:

__contentheader:__ _This topic uses a VIEW_TEMPLATE called TestTopic21ViewTemplate._
__content:__ _This topic uses a VIEW_TEMPLATE called TestTopic21ViewTemplate._


The HTML output is the following:
<h1><a name="PublishContrib_VIEW_TEMPLATE_Tes"></a> PublishContrib VIEW_TEMPLATE Test </h1>
<p />
<p />
<!-- <ul>
<li> Set VIEW_TEMPLATE = TestTopic21View?
<p />
<p />
<p />
<hr />
<p />
<hr />
<p />
<p />
<p />

fwiw, i am using VIEW_TEMPLATE in the meta preferences data, and it does work. for example:

%META:PREFERENCE{name="VIEW_TEMPLATE" title="VIEW_TEMPLATE" type="Set" value="ShowView"}%

Thanks! I found out that it's due to the skin I'm using for publishing. When using the standard basic_publish skin, the VIEW_TEMPLATE is ignored. However, when using plain skin it works (although it only works if VIEW_TEMPLATE is set using Set and not using Local, seeTasks.Item8466).

But then I get lots of error messages complaining about missing javascript files:

The problem is the ?version= string, I think. Needs a minor fix to Please raise a task.
