[Qgis-developer] save as shapefile has trouble with multi-geometry features

Hey folks,

 I've been putting this off for a while but decided to take the plunge
and learn the new cmake system to get at the latest goodies such as
python bindings and vector data output. I have to say kudos.. it works
beautifully and is much cleaner (and faster!) than the autoconf build

 On to my question...  the export to shapefile works great for layers
with single-part geometries but all multi-geometry features seem to be
dropped from the output. (see attached screenshots). The console shows
the following error for each multi-geometry it enountered:

ERROR 1: Length of input WKB is too small

I'm not too familiar with the vector provider stuff .. is this an easy fix?
