Screenshots are hard to get of this since there's so much flicker and the artifacts aren't too noticeable unless the flicker is there. So I took a video clip:

 

 

For this video I reverted back to using only the triangle plane normals to calculate front or back facing. I found that offsetting the shadow volume polygons by epsilon*lightDirection (this is currently only directional light shadows) works well in eliminating a lot of the artifacts, but as you can see on the torus, its not quite gone. Even if I optimize epsilon for just the torus object I can't get it to look right. 

 

I like your suggestions, Erik Rufelt. I really am tempted to try adding an extra pass to deal with this directly, but I'm worried that it will cost double the processing time per shadow. 

 

Have a look at the video clip and see if you come up with some suggestions.
