I have included a small example where you can see that the +x and +y faces are split one way by the triangles and the other way by the tetrahedra, the other faces are correct. I have tried orienting the faces a couple of different ways, but haven't had any luck. Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug?

It's a limitation of the 3D transfinite algorithm. The orientation of the splitting is not automatic: you have to specify the corner vertices in a coherent way (manually) to have a matching.
