Thanks. I've a 26 vertices reduction on trac.
That's the best place to continue this:

I think the problem is a robustness issue in PlanarGraph building.
Fixing it won't be easy, but I guess we could just throw a TopologyException
thus allowing higher levels to try some heuristic to fix that.

Unfortunately the heuristic used results in an extreme loss of precision,
finally giving a buffer which is very unlikely to be what you're looking for.
More info on the tracker.

I'm currently trying to setup a testcase for PlanarGraph building.
It strikes me that there's no unit testing for that even in JTS...
