Probably my fault. I couldn't redo with NVidia OpenCL yet, will try AMD later.

I can't reproduce this issue with an RX 480, driver 17.9.1 and Windows 10. I tried using the default tile size in this file and bigger ones like 256x256 and 1024x1024.

I also looked over the relevant code changes but couldn't find anything suspicious. I would guess it's some issue with a wrong ray state that causes the path iteration to never finish, but would expect that kind of problem to happen on any GPU.
