Thanks. It just seems strange, since I've done hundreds of sets of data
*exactly like this*, that is, with regularly spaced points, even with
basically the *same* points except for one or two differences here
(literally one or two differences).

Your data include lots of co-linear points, which are undoubtedly
the reason for the failure. You might be able to compute your own
(non-Delaunay) triangulation, say between each pair of adjacent
x-rows, then merge those (then pass the result to DelaunayCustom).
Or perhaps DelaunayClarkson will do better, as Curtis suggests.
