Description
The chord_and_tangent
method fails to treat one special case: the t
-family of points
(dy*t+P[0], (-dx-dz)*t+P[1], dy*t+P[2])
might fail to parametrize a line if (dy,-dx-dz,dy)
is projectively equivalent to P. One needs to try two independent normal directions...
This leads to the following failure (reported by Pierre Vanhove):
