Surely a negative magnitude doesn't make sense in polar coordinates, 
since the magnitude is supposed to represent the distance from the center.

About the best interpretation I can think of is to add 180 degrees to 
the angle and reverse the sign of the magnitude, but this would be a 
hack. Where are those coordinates coming from?
