I find it weird that some faces are being culled like that. What happens if you 
deselect "Limit selection to visible"? I suspect that is the problem here.

If that is the problem, you'd have to reimplement the selection method all 
together as the depth buffer would still be useless for small objects 
regardless of how you use it.
