reported for shapefiles only so far.
[springmeyer] Looks like we 1) don't catch multipoints in the shape plugin and 2) get caught in an infinite loop where we never reach the end of the file right here: http://trac.mapnik.org/browser/trunk/plugins/input/shape/shape_featureset.cpp#L106
[springmeyer] I also noticed that the ogr pluging can read multipoint only if the 'multiple_geometries" flag is passed - which, if I understand correctly 'explodes' each point into its own geometry. If that flag is not passed then the points are lost/ignored.
[springmeyer] see r1458 where I added workaround for ogr driver.
I still consider this a blocker until we avoid the infinite loop in the shapefile plugin.
[springmeyer] pushing to 0.7.0
[springmeyer] pushing back to 0.7.0 as I've just run into another situation where this same loop is not exited.
[springmeyer] r1559 fixed multipoint reading, but it looks like we still are missing proper handling of multipointzm. will attach testing shapefile next.
[artem] Fixed in 0.7 branch. Both multipoint and multipointzm (with or without index) are handled correctly.
