I don't know what causes the error message but I do not believe
it is the issue of cartesian coordinates versus polar
coordinates since the following works with no error messages
PolarPlot[Cos[2 theta], {theta, 0, 2 Pi}, AspectRatio -> Automatic,
Prolog ->
Inset[RegionPlot[(x^2 + y^2)^(3/2) <= x^2 - y^2, {x, -0.02,
1}, {y, -1, 1},
Frame -> False, AspectRatio -> Automatic], {0, 0}, {0, 0}, 1.06]]
The only aspect of the the code above I do not understand is
the necessity of setting the last size argument to Inset to
1.06. I would have expected this to be 1. But that results in a
plot where the right leaf is not completely colored in.
