It turns out that for layers with multipolygons in them it is necessary to create the SDE layer with the SDE_MULTIPART_TYPE_MASK set. Change applied in trunk (r22295).

I am mildly concerned that such layers (with multipart and area types set) may not be usable in ArcGIS since the case where point/line/area flags are all set has this warning:

                  "Warning: Creation of a wkbUnknown layer in ArcSDE will "
                  "result in layers which are not displayable in Arc* "
                  "software" );

I shall see if my client can check on this.

No feedback, things are presumably ok.
