Mathematica bug in Graphics3D ??

Hello,

I'm using Mathematica 4.0.1.0 under NT4 and when I try:

Show[Graphics3D[Polygon[{{2.5, Sqrt[3]/2, 0}, {3.5, Sqrt[3]/2, 0}, 
{4, Sqrt[3], 0}, {3, 2*Sqrt[3], 0}, {2, 2*Sqrt[3], 0}, 
{3, Sqrt[3], 0}} ]], Axes -> True]

Mathematica draws a polygon with only 5 corners where the last point
{3,Sqrt[3],0} is missing. Am I doing something wrong here or what is
going on ?

Many thanks

		Axel
