Hate to say this, but this is a known bug in Carve upstream (a library we're using for boolean operations). Author of that library was looking into it, would need to check the status with him.

There's not much we can do from Blender side unfortunately, so archiving this report as known issue with 3d part lib. But thank for the report anyway!
