You know the spotted base where the height=0.
I was going through the 3.6 source code and there is:

const DBL HFIELD_OFFSET = 0.001;

This was added and subtracted to the bounding box as well as other things I
haven't chased down.

The point is that if I use a water_line of .001 the spots goes away.

I don't know about other versions. I guess I need to chase them down.

Have Fun!
