I observed, that calling the distanceTo - Method on Polygons containing circular Arcs can cause python.exe to crash without throwing a exception.
After processing (linearizing the arcs) the polygon featureclass with:
arcpy.Densify_edit(in_features='in_Memory/fc', densification_method='OFFSET', max_deviation=0.001)
it is possible to process the featureclass with "distanceTo" without problems.
I would like to know if this is a bug or a feature? Are there other options of circumventing the problem?
Thank you Bernhard
