Question: Why can neither solve nor SolveEquations find a correct inellipse?

In this worksheet the solve command almost immediately gives up and DirectSearch[SolveEquations] is erratic.

For some triangle/inellipse points of tangency the latter provides a nonsense answer and for others it produces an almost correct solution.

Is there a set of conditions which determine the possibility of an inellipse within a triangle?

A responder will have to establish a connection to the DirectSearch package.
