The above (being unable to include Egypt when island is added) still
depends on the tolerance value, right ? There's probably a spatial
configuration between those 2 polygons that triggers an excessive
snapping with high tolerances. Keep your tolerances low!

Or, insert the island in the topology as the last thing, and see
where the error ends up being (the whole point of building the
topology incrementally rather than in a single step is to be able
to deal with each case separately, and spot what's special about it)
