Polygon collision is not working correctly

Topics: User Forum

I have a problem with my polygon collision. In one special case, the collision isn't working properly. In this case, the ball touches both sides of the heart simultaneously and the ball isn't falling directly through the heart. The ball stops for a second and only after that it is falling through the heart. You can see that in this video:
On the other hand, if the ball only touches one side of the heart, it's working correctly and the ball is falling directly through the heart. You can see that in this video:

What is wrong with my code? Why is the polygon collsion not working correctly when the ball touches both sides of the heart simultaneously?
Is something wrong with my code or is that a bug in Farseer? I use Farseer 3.3.1.
