That's probably not a bug, but I need to geometry with shadowcatcher cast a shadow on himself.

Interesting, seems it doesn't support self shadowing at probably needs to be like this.
As a workaround, you probably could create a slightly offset geometry and turn on invisible to camera.

have you tried using self-illluminated CoronaMtl with black diffuse instead?
Rendering is magic.

on the steel profiles are balconies and i need shadows on the fasade. If I use selfillum in coronamtl, so shadows arent on the facade.
