First of all you should make sure to be running the latest development
version of PostGIS Topology, then you would need to reduce the dataset
as much as possibly without loosing the "lwpoly_from_lwlines" error.

The "shell must be closed" error should not come out anymore during
toTopoGeom as recent versions. It comes from an failed attempt to convert
a polygon to GEOS format, for some topological operation. We should not
be doing that since we moved to the edge-walking algorithm:
