This happens reliably at certain coordinates on the map. 0.15-a0-1512-gdf1f371 was an attempt to fix this but just made it happen at different coordinates.
It happens when a ray's path gets very close to the corner of a cell: part of the ray code thinks it's on the corner but part knows that it's not.
We only ever see this with rays where the angle is explicitly set in code (cones, scattershot, chaos bouncing when that was a thing). I think if we "snap" these rays to the grid (so they act as though they were targetted at a particular cell) it would prevent the problem (though not exactly "solve" it).
Numerical analysis welcome!
Probably fixed in trunk (0.18-a0-1002-ged0b5f8), thanks!
While the underlying rounding problem might still exist, it appeared to only trigger when the ray's direction vector was relatively large, which happened because of the error fixed in the cited commit.
