At this time, the only way to avoid the warnings is to comment out the
line in the source code that's producing them!

It's all to do with how polygons (and lines) are split when they extend
across multiple subdivisions in the map. Now it may be that the test
that is producing the error message can be removed and those polygons
that it thinks are outside of the map area can continue to be processed
like they were before I put the test in. In fact, you could try that
and see if any other messages appear. So if you go to line 121 of
MapArea.java and make the test in the if statement true then those
messages would go away and I would be interested to learn if you get
any other messages instead.

Let's just say that it's work in progress.
