Comment(by hamish):

 the triplicate symbols in d.barscale still happens in lat/lon locations
 with the new version of the module. The infill problem is fixed now.

 it seems to be during this code of D_symbol():
 case S_POLYGON:
 /* again, to draw the lines */
 for (k = 0; k < chain->scount; k++) {
     xp = x0 + sx * chain->sx[k];
     yp = y0 - sy * chain->sy[k];
     if (k == 0)
         D_move_abs(xp, yp);
         D_cont_abs(xp, yp);

 which is called only once.

 adding a printf() in the loop shows the xp and yp display coords look ok:
 xp=50.40 yp=368.00
 xp=33.40 yp=386.00
 xp=50.40 yp=316.00
 xp=68.40 yp=386.00
 xp=50.40 yp=368.00
 xp=50.40 yp=368.00

 I tried throwing in a D_close() before the D_end(), no change.

  - It is unclear to me what D_end() does now, it appears to be a no-op?

 trying the different north_arrow= symbol options shows the problem
 manifesting itself differently through a couple different scenarios.
 My first guess would be a missing D_stroke(), but it's right there...
 so my next guess is some D_move_*() or D_pos_*() function error. It's a
 bit unclear to me when to use D_pos_*(), I tried to add some more header
 comments with what I understand about them, but some clarification would
 be appreciated as I fear spreading misinformation.
