Why not? In the example ABCD we have
Looks to me like a well-defined system.
Well, it's correct that this is a well-defined system, but for the second example the cycle-finding algorithm would output a third equation that would need to be discarded using whatever means available. For convenience here is the same picture again:
If we rewrite these equations using absolute potentials, the third equation is still redundant.
