The following input to FindCurvePath produces the output shown below it:

FindCurvePath::ntri: The data generates an inconsistent
triangulation. You can perturb the data to make it valid. >>
Fail

If you restore the commented-out list elements (beginning with
(*{306,148}...), then evaluate, you get an apparently never-ending
silent hangup, which is of course far worse than an error message.

I have not yet tried to "perturb" anything to work around the problem.
Clearly the function needs to check its arguments before wandering off
into lala land.
