Yup, I can't see anything really missing in the diff.

No, they flash and are very consistent, and follow the flower, even
when there is no real triangle reaching that point, when I stop
moving. I suspect there is a tiny bunch of at least three vertices.
I will try to reproduce it with the cliptest program, or least verify
with prints if there are extra vertices.

Yeah, I'll try to reproduce problems with cliptest, and get you
