Since the input is cell-vertex, my guess is that the order of the vertices
on a cell is not what I expect.
I have readers for common formats, but FromCellList() is my own. You can
see what vertices I think
constitute the faces:

Sorry, this was confusing. Most people are using the input formats, mesh
generators, or predefined shapes,
so I do not get a lot of feedback on this interface.
