Hi Marko,

I don't understand what your real problem is. Please be more specific 

The multipolygons I have checked are non conformant to the multipolygon 
definition. Most of them should be handled ok by the mkgmap multipolygon 
handler. I don't see where the handler should be more robust (I need a 
concrete example for that :-)

My short comment: We cannot fix bad imports! (we can only try)
