Ah, that's the trick! Well done!

I am thinking about if it makes sense to add a kind of sudden merging in 
the multipolygon cut routines. The idea is as follows:
If the cut of an area returns more than 2 areas, two of the areas can 
safely be merged if their common edges (1 edge is the connection of two 
points) are all connected.

This would result in less cut artifacts. Maybe it is also possible to 
remove points synthetically added by the cut.

What do you think?
