Heh :) but it was my mistake, of course... that, and the 
problem that precision is finite.

Mapping: cubical. My chosen angle: 45 degrees.
Problem: during rotation, the cumulated result down the 
object hierarchy may have been 44.999999 - or 45.000001
Result: every now and then, the texture was indecisive if if 
belonged to the front or the side of the cube.
Solution: use 44 degrees. And it's OK now. :)

I'll let it run again, so my video won't be ready until 
tomorrow afternoon...
