 The issue is the logic used to fill in the gaps between nodes. If the next
 node goes 10° backwards, that's like 350° - requiring 350/20 extra nodes
 to be added.

 My patch detects these situations and simply shows an error and bails out
 of the whole process. I think some fringe situations may still trigger it,
 but they're much less likely.
