 Dear Boost Geometry contributors.

 As always: Thanks for your great work. Your work is an incredible help
 every day.

 I discovered a problem, which I guess you can help me with.

 If you look at the below test case you will see a small polygon where two
 points touches each other and forms a "hole" in the polygon.

 If I call is_valid with this polygon it tells me that the polygon is

 If I then tries to dissolve it, the output is again not valid.

 My question is therefore if it could be a problem with is_valid or
 dissolve. Alternatively what could I do to make it valid so that it can be
 used for calls to e.g sym_difference?

 Thanks a lot


   polygon<point_xy<float>> Poly;
   read_wkt("POLYGON((0 3, 3 3, 3 1, 2 1, 2 2, 1 2, 1 1, 2 1, 2 0, 0 0, 0
 3))", Poly);


   multi_polygon<polygon<point_xy<float>>> Polys;
   dissolve(Poly, Polys);
