I have two shapefiles for the entire State of Maine that display either badly or completely wrong in QGIS. Both were made by dissolving (Using ArcCatalog/ArcToolbox) all of the townships in the State so that only the shape of the State is present. Due to many islands, there are over 1,000 polygon features.
In QGIS, the 1:100k shapefile displays as half fill, half black (see attached screenshot qgis_error1.png). The 1:24k scale, higher detail shapefile is really bad, missing the vast majority of the state (see qgis_error2.png showing the same extent).
This is a major problem. I remember 0.7.4 on OS X (but not Windows) having similar difficulty where it simply ran into a maximum number of vertices limit. Does this limit still exist, now in Windows too?
I have tried using multipart polygon features with the exact same results.
