Hi Christoph,

It's actually this issue again:

I investigated this a bit more thoroughly, and I think it's caused by 
implicit truncation of double to long long, that can result in 
off-by-one errors when the x87 FPU produces a subtly different result 
than other floating point processors. This can quickly lead to an 
accumulation of errors, when lots of off-by-one results are added together.

I have attached a preliminary patch for the failing IntPointTest that 
uses explicit round-to-nearest instead of truncation, but nothing for 
the other issue yet. A quick workaround would be a patch like the one 
you posted in that bug report, but I think this is really a fundamental 
issue in CuraEngine that needs to be fixed properly.
