Division won't create objects with holes

Bug Description

The division function behaves incorrectly when one of the resulting shapes should have a hole. For example, if you draw a circle inside of a square, then divide the square by the circle, you should get a square with a circular hole, and a circle. But the actual result is a square with no hole, and two circles. I've gotten this result with both 0.46 and 0.47.

@Alvin - could you take a look at the attached example? There seem to be cases where this problem still happens (select one of the gray paths and the overlapping red rectangle, and apply 'Path > Division').

If you think this is unrelated to what was originally reported here, please let me know and I will file a separate report.

thanks, it looks like it is the same problem as originally, I'll look into it.
