If it is indeed tagged as you described, that sounds correct to me.
I'm having a similar issue myself with Salt Fork Lake in Ohio.

I think I once saw a ticket about a similar issue on the OSM trac.
There it was explained that if the upload process took more than 5
minutes, (as can happen with large lakes,) it may not have been
correctly represented by the minutely diffs used to update Mapnik's
copy of the planet.  The solution is to wait for the next planet dump,
which should represent the feature correctly.

So let's wait till Wednesday or so, and if our lakes still don't
render right, we'll head to the trac to complain.
