for(i=0;i<b.value;i++) {
    for(var i=0;i<b.value;i++) {
javascript is treating "i" as a global var so when you call itself, global
"i" gets changed which will bugger up your loop - I've done this soooo many
times and spent toooo many hours trying to debug, just to find I forgot to
declare a var as local!!

    for(i=0;i<b.value;i++) {
      if (a.value=="off") {
        change_check_to(tree_item + "_" + i, 0);
      } else {
        change_check_to(tree_item + "_" + i, 1);
      change_check_all(tree_item + "_" + i, i);
