Geometry output on the website has been fixed, you should see correct multipolygons now in all views.

When asking for xml/json, the polygon option will still not return a correct multipolygon. This won't fix for reason of backward compatibility. Try one of the new polygon options instead: polygon_geojson, polygon_kml, polygon_svg or polygon_text, which will return correct geometries, but be aware that they are still experimental at the moment. That means that the format might still change slightly.
