Thea's shadow catcher doesn't have a diffuse layer, I think that's how they got around all the oddities

A better option is camera mapping in my opinion, you can do all sorts :)

The area light now shows a fine line between lit regions and regions in the back of the area light.
I attached the scene.
It was a self-shadow problem of the area light source, not strictly related to the shadow catcher but only really visible in this case. I should have fixed the problem.
