This artifact rears its ugly head when merging a torus and a cylinder into a
very fat discus-like object. See p.b.i for an illustration.
I thought surely I had discovered this problem while I was fiddling with the
meniscus code for CoffeeMug in 2013. But checking the dates on my test files,
it turns out I'd discovered it in 2008, a mere three days after starting work on
RoundEdge. (I'm not too surprised at this recall failure; meat-based brains are
known to be unreliable.)
I almost immediately realized why my torus-cylinder merges showed this artifact,
which is why I never reported this as a bug. But bug or not, it is annoying, so
it is fixed in RoundEdge 1.3.1.
Why I didn't take steps to correct the problem in RoundEdge 1.0 is a mystery.
Another meat brain failure, perhaps?
