I've had similar problems with booleans when one face of volume A coincides with another face of volume B, or when the two volumes share one or more edges. In some cases I have been able to work around this by slightly changing the dimensions (by maybe a mm or less) of one of the volumes so that they no longer share faces or edges. No guarantees of course, but you might try this if your application tolerates small deviations from actual dimensions.
