The exterior ring was omitted from the output. This happened earlier
with Luke's test in November, it was solved provisionally then, but
apparently this is the same problem. In the meantime the problem has
been solved and I hope to deploy it this weekend to Boost sandbox,
together with the multi-polygon union (w.r.t. Kef's message).
