[Gmsh] Meshing STL File

I have a similar behaviour, but with a standard geo script, no stl.

I have some a relatively small characteristic length, for some value  
it crashes, but not if this value is slightly modified (bigger or  
smaller), though the surface mesh is ok, the mesh inside it is not  
relevant (just as meshed with much bigger characteristic length).

This happens with version 2.2.1 but not with 2.2.0.
