Hi Volker,

Thanks for all your reports!

I can reproduce this in 1.49 based on int. So alas it is not solved in
the meantime.

Using double coordinates it is OK and Boost.Geometry's results are
identical to SQL Server's results (w.r.t. area - there are some "spikey"
lines which differ).

So it is an int-problem.

I will have a closer look coming weeks - hope to solve this for 1.50.

Regards, Barend
