Probably same problem as


I'm looking into it. The problem seems to be that if there are very thin 
sliver triangles in the triangulation, they can cause rounding errors in 
the barycentric transforms in the triangle walking algorithm and make it 
think two triangles are both closer to the target point.

This can be solved by limiting the iteration count, and falling back to 
brute force if it fails. I'll make that change.

That's needed for the 1-D problem only.
