patch: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=382801&aid=1583115&group_id=24884
which had previously lapsed via the automatic 14-day auto-close
feature has been re-opened to address this new problem.

In addition to my comment below I would urge Dmitry to elaborate on
his specific problems if he can, to attempt to get to the bottom of
this issue and discover the specific issue that has affected him.


>From reading the mailing list today I know that the author of the
patch (Tuan) is now aware of the problem. However my impression is
that it would not be a problem that can be fixed without some more
time for a reproducible test case scenario to be devised.

I will try to follow the progress of this resolution as I feel
somewhat responsible for the problem however I am unable to take
action in actually fixing issues with this collider as I have neither
witnessed them in my own project nor am I familiar with the code as it
now stands.

In my opinion I would say roll back to the original 0.7 version until
the problems in the 0.8 release candidate can be resolved and verified
with a more extensive test mechanism than 'test_heightfield'. Perhaps
as mentioned on the list this will prove to be a good candidate for
unit testing.
