I guess from your results below that a bug report to WRI is in order.

Incidentally your analysis reminds me of a design problem I had in 1966.
The problem was to optimise the shape of the two surfaces of a high-gain cassegraine antenna given
the radial characteristics of the microwave source located about where your point is.
The antenna ended up on the UK AWAC aircraft of that era.
I programmed in Algol in those days on an Elliott Automation 803.
Boy how I would like to have had Mathematica and a Mac in 1966!
