      Description

      If I use obs_lsstSim to construct a FOCAL_PLANE to FIELD_ANGLE transformation, it does not invert FOCAL_PLANE to FIELD_ANGLE (curiously, the inversion does seem to work going the other way).

      The attached script will reproduce the failure when run against the w_2018_09 version of afw and obs_lsstSim.

          I was testing on values of FIELD_ANGLE that are ~ 0.1 radians. If I reduce that by an order of magnitude, the failure goes away. Clearly, this is just a problem with excessively large values of FIELD_ANGLE. I suspect this is not actually a bug. Sorry for the confusion.

          I don't actually think this is a bug. My first test was ill-posed.
