I must admit that, being an "osmarender guy", I have not thought about 
how Mapnik handles these things, but as I said before, it would be very 
surprising if Mapnik were dependent on islands having one long closed 
coastline. It wouldn't be able to render Ireland then, or the UK mainland.

Tiles at home should be able to deal with islands having a split coastline; 
I have invested a lot of time in getting the Orkney islands right over 
the weekend and I know for a fact that a split coastline is not a 
problem there.
