Yes, I've just confirmed, and it seems that the svn version is working
properly. I will now do more tests. Thank you very much for your help.

So, what is the correct way to define the points? Anticlockwise, starting
in the lower left point?

Yes, this happens when the points are defined in the other sense. Is there a
way to test for ill defined points or point insertion order?

Yes, I've just downloaded the svn version, and it's working.

I will follow now the svn version.
Thank you very much.
