I closed it because you had reproduced the issue, confirming it was a
malformed polyhedron producing the CGAL assertion. Nothing to be fixed in
OpenSCAD. We get CGAL assertion error reports regularly, very few - close to
zero, are other than bad STLs or poly's.

I agree with you that a CGAL assertion is not a very user friendly method to
report problems with geometry.

Admin - email* me if you need anything,  or if I've done something stupid...
