and sliced
model - http://dl.dropbox.com/u/315849/Slic3r/z-motor-mount.stl

Note that the first layer has a different single wall width to the higher layers:
; single wall width = 0.42mm
; first layer single wall width = 0.80mm

This gives:
problem gcode

as you can see - layer 2 and 3 have the area between the hole and the wall filled with the normal infill (the same as layer 4) instead of the solid infill (config has 3 solid layers).

I think the code doing this is in Print/Object.pm sub discover_horizontal_shells

                # assign resulting inner surfaces to layer
                my $neighbor_fill_surfaces = $self->layers->[$n]->fill_surfaces;
                @$neighbor_fill_surfaces = ();
                push @$neighbor_fill_surfaces, Slic3r::Surface->new
                    (expolygon => $_, surface_type => S_TYPE_INTERNAL)
                    for @$internal;

changing the surface_type here to S_TYPE_INTERNALSOLID fixes the problem for me (if on the 2nd layer)

                # assign resulting inner surfaces to layer
                my $neighbor_fill_surfaces = $self->layers->[$n]->fill_surfaces;
                @$neighbor_fill_surfaces = ();
                push @$neighbor_fill_surfaces, Slic3r::Surface->new
                    (expolygon => $_, surface_type => ($i > 2)?S_TYPE_INTERNAL:S_TYPE_INTERNALSOLID)
                    for @$internal;

after gcode

I also have this issue, on the Ecksbot bar clamp it forgets solid layer 2 and 3 entirely.

@markspace, thank you for providing such good test case and screenshots. They're very helpful. I'm looking into this now.

Fixed!
