Fails: 2.72 83cbcef
Also fails on 2.72b official
I remember a similar issue which was fixed. Could you try it again with a recent build from buildbot?
Aargh, didn't want to close, yet
Sorry, I should have been more clear. The first build I tested was in fact a buildbot version from Dec 9, 2014: Blender 2.72.3 win64
@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton), this is caused by solidify returning bad topology. Easy to see in this file
My guess is that non-manifold workaround is to be extended to this case..
Fix for T43643 fixed this too. (was same error in fact)
