You mean, make each way from two non-contiguous sections?  Interesting,
I'll have to try it.  That certainly would get around the limitation on
directionality of the areas.  It didn't occur to me that the renderer
might do its "stupid trick" more than once.  I'm sure it would get it
wrong for three non-contiguous sections as well.

Of course, removal of segments will get rid of this problem too, I can't
wait for that to happen.

Thanks for the suggestion, I hope it will work.
