I routinely use the PBF input format for creating my --style=routes-* 
layers. If there are bugs in the PBF input, they could be in the parsing 
of polygons. I guess I could find this out easily: create a style that 
translates only natural=water polygons, and feed finland.osm.pbf to it.  
If it complains about areas that the default style does not complain 
about, then the PBF parser is to blame.

Some time ago, I complained that the PBF code path did not produce some 
warnings about oneways coming from or going to nowhere, while the XML 
path did. I just realized that the head of the mkgmap.log.* was most 
likely discarded because of the numerous warnings about unreferenced 
nodes in ways. I only had configured 4 log files of at most 5MB each.
