Damn it. I mean, the most interesting part is that on a piece of paper I 
was drawing it outer radius is marked as "a", while inner (which is 0.5 
in this case) as b, and all the equations are correct. But in POVRay I 
managed to mess with a and b. The most interesting part is, therefore, 
what exactly I was thinking about while moving it from paper to POVRay.

Thank you very much. I'm pretty sure I'd never found this stupid mistake 
myself.
