I have the following simple RegionPlot of a RegionUnion:

  Rectangle[{-0.125, -0.125}, {0.125, 0.125}],  
  Rectangle[{0.126, -0.05}, {0.425, 0.05}]
], AspectRatio -> Automatic]

This looks all good, but when I change the 0.126 to 0.125 to merge the two rectangles the union drops two corners of the region:

enter image description here

What is going wrong here and how can I display the correct region? Strangely enough with different numeric values it seems to work.

    $\begingroup$ What version of Mathematica are you running? I got my results with V10.2 running on OS X 10.10.2 $\endgroup$ – m_goldberg Sep 19 '15 at 23:38
  • $\begingroup$ I get what the OP has shown with V10.0 in Windows 10 (64-bit) $\endgroup$ – Hubble07 Sep 20 '15 at 7:20

This is not an answer, but a comment in which I need to show an image.

I don't see any problem with your code. When I evaluate

    Rectangle[{-0.125, -0.125}, {0.125, 0.125}], 
    Rectangle[{0.125, -0.05}, {0.425, 0.05}]],
  AspectRatio -> Automatic]

I get


which is exactly what I expect. Are you getting something different? Or, if you getting the same image, why do you think it is wrong?

    $\begingroup$ I'm on 10.2 and duplicated m_goldberg's result. $\endgroup$ – Jack LaVigne Sep 20 '15 at 1:58
  • $\begingroup$ I get (almost) your result. That "(almost)" is because the OP has 0.126 in the second rectangle instead of the 0.125 you used. $\endgroup$ – Sjoerd C. de Vries Sep 20 '15 at 15:01
  • $\begingroup$ @SjoerdC.deVries: The image I show is when using 0.125. With 0.126 it looks ok, but the rectangles are not joined (which is not what I want). $\endgroup$ – Danvil Sep 21 '15 at 16:49
