As you say, this is discussed on thread 624 of this, the Geometry forum. There is some advice there about workarounds. But your code is very problematic for the visualisation of the resulting solid. Note: tracking should still be OK. Note also, it's not an OpenGL problem - it's a problem of constructing a polyhedral representation of the resulting solid.

If you can, yourself, define your solid in terms of polygonal faces (at present only triangles and quadrilaterals), you could try G4TessellatedSolid. CAD systems typically define shapes this way and some can provide the resulting polygons.
