    The geometry of the map was very simple. An open courtyard with four walls, at one end a doorway into a hexagonal room.

    I was experimenting with 2D skyboxes and wrapped the entire layout in a hollow brush.

    I compiled and loaded the map in-game and extra geometry was attached onto all the surfaces of my rooms. It looked like every vertical brush and horizontal brush on the hexagonal room had an extra, equal-size brush attached to one of its faces.

    I'm still not exactly sure what happened and I just nuked the whole thing and went to bed.

    I haven't come across anything like that in any forum thread or tutorial. Is something like that possible?

    I think you might have some invalid brushes. Go to Map -> Check for Problems to find out about any Invalid Solid Structures.

    Wow, you really didn't have the best of luck with walkway, did you? Or more specifically, just that spot.
