Thx - I’ve created an issue: https://github.com/openscad/openscad/issues/1671

FYI: The problem is that we perform minkowski calculations as pairwise hulls, and CGAL’s hull algorithm doesn’t allow for results without a volume.
CGAL’s built-in minkowski algorithm has a similar problem and won’t create the resulting object, but it’s unknown why. If someone wants to dig, it might make sense to submit an issue on the latter to CGAL.
