Wondering if anyone has run into problems with self intersecting polygons and slivers causing problems in down stream tools?

We have had translation problems (into ICX for example), seen abnormalities in PI downstrean tools such as Ansoft SIwave and abnormlities in gerbers.

Has anyone run into similar problems?

What was the root cause of these problems and possible fixes?

This has caused a lot of additional time and headaches our part and any experience you have would be greatly appreciated.
