Basemap shapelib change from 1.0.1 to 1.0.2

Hi I noticed that Basemap 1.0.2 will replace the old pyshapelib with
the pure python shapelib.py. However, that did break some of my
scripts when I use custom shapefiles.

Here is a picture from Basemap 1.0.1,

and here the same script under Basemap 1.0.2,

and here is the script:
http://pastebin.com/WfePCFJi

It probably has something to do with the way shapelib.py handle the
lines, As soon as I have some time I'll take a better look into that,
but I would like to ask if anyone has seen this before and/or if you
have a suggestion/solution for it.

Thanks, Filipe

Filipe: Were you able to resolve this? I just updated shapefile.py in the git repository, so you might try again on the off chance a bug was fixed. If the problem still persists, please point me to a shapefile that triggers the problem.

Thanks, but the problem persists. I haven't got time to look into it
yet, as soon as I do I'll get back to you.

Regarding the shapefile, I do not remember the official source
anymore, but you can get a copy here:

Thanks again, Filipe

Filipe: I believe I've fixed it - your shapefile now displays correctly for me. Please try updating from https://github.com/matplotlib/basemap.
