Hmm, I have to say I'm curious about the regularity of those black
spots. The numerical issues I've hit are usually noisier - or completely
black/invisible/something when a hard numerical limit is hit.
Any chance I could get a smallish test case posted to one of the scene
file groups? I'll stick it in my POVRay_Issues directory and at least
take a quick look if not now a deep one.
