I had a second look at the multipolygons where this problem exists and
found out that if I zoom in (on the device) with the cursor right on
the edge of the multipolygon hole, I can select 2 "wood" polygons when
the hole disappears. So i suspect that in high zoom levels, mkgmap
cuts the holes correctly, but fills them with a polygon that has the
same object type as the outer polygon.
In my examples, this creates wood-in-wood polygons.

Even though I can't code, I hope this helps to fix the problem... :-)
