genapts850 hangs on some airports from "the gateway"

Hi,

while slowly proceeding with a pipelined world scenery build [1][2], I
noticed that genapts850 hangs while processing certain airports from the
x-plane gateway (e.g. SBFN)
I found the culprit in some airports having many, very small "linear
features", usually white lines. Thoses features are usually polygons, as
small as a few square meters.
For some reason the tgAccumulator::Diff method hangs while clipping
intersecting polygons. Thats eventually because of our snapping to a grid.

For now, I decided to simply drop polygons of linear features that are too
small. Small means "less than 5 meters from the south-western corner to the
north-eastern corner".

Following is the patch for linearfeature.cxx - this seems to let genapts
proceed a bit further.
My git clone of the terragear with a few hacky patches to make the tools
usable (again) is at
https://sourceforge.net/u/torstendreyer/t3r-terragear/ci/t3r/tree/
I am not very familiar with the genapts process - maybe somebody with more
knowledge can comment on this?

drop small linear feature polys

try fix a hang of genapts850 for very small linear features
