Correct. There is no problem with overflow. The problem is in the routine 
                int lat = Math.round(res[1]);
                int lon = Math.round(res[0]);

In special cases, this rounding can change a clockwise way to an counter-clockwise 
way or vice versa.

Sorry, the points are given as lat/lon pairs, but that doesn't matter, you are right, the way with these 
(rounded) values is counter-clockwise. The non-rounded values are different and 
describe a way that is clockwise.

I know that I tend to misinterpret the names (my patch used height for latitude 
values and width for longitude values :-( , but the result doesn't depend on the
