And some of us had no idea it even existed.

Christoph - what IS the distance used?  And what should be the separation
distance?  Any value above that plus the minimum value that POV-Ray recognizes?


I'd probably also suggest that you make a tube or a sleeve if you still run into
problems.
I did:

#declare Sleeve =
difference {
 cylinder {< -0.0052500000, 0.0000000000, 0.0000000000 >, < 0.0052500000,
0.0000000000, 0.0000000000 >, 0.0015000000*1.001}
  cylinder {< -0.0052500000, 0.0000000000, 0.0000000000 >, < 0.0052500000,
0.0000000000, 0.0000000000 >, 0.0015000000}
 texture {pigment {color Red transmit 0.99}}
 no_shadow
}

 object {Sleeve}

But I had no idea the scale was an actual factor / cause of the problem.  It
just seemed an oddly small scale to work on, with awkward values.  ;)
