Creating objects from intersecting lines

Hi,

I am trying to create objects from intersecting lines and a circle.
I found a way on this thread : viewtopic.php?t=523 and succeeded with a small test.

But on another one it does not work.

Just to explain :
I have got three horizontal curved lines and three vertical curved lines i combine together, and then I do a division with the circle they are in so that I can get 16 objects I can work with. This is attachment OK.png

But my other try, wich is for me exactly the same, it doe not work. When I divide, I obtain something totally weird. This attachment KO.png.

I attach the SVG file (test.svg) with both working (the small circle) and not working (the big one) examples.

Could someone explain me where is the difference between them ?

Thank you in advance.

The bottom object will always be cut by the top object. In the KO the circle was on top and therefore your strange result was the circle cutting the grid.
