My sleeping dreams...

On waking this morning I had the thought the above statement likely 
only applies with my povr branch where the +ur/-ur behavior has no 
exceptions.

The official POV-Ray branches have hidden, user bounds stripping 
exceptions. I'd make a moderate bet the polynomial shape is one of those 
exceptions. If right, the infinite count will NOT go up with +ur in the 
official POV-Ray branches - and the render result won't revert.
