St_Intersection produces incorrect results while calling several times on multipolygon with holes and polygon intersection.

St_Intersection makes as result an multipolygon with incorrect holes.

St_Intersection makes different intersection results on multiply calls.

Single call gives right result.

To detect this bug you may calculate Area(St_Intersection) or view on resulting geometry in geometry viewers. Area fluctuation in how-to-repeat query is shown.

How to repeat:
Execute queries from attached file.
See at ST_AREA column values - it varies from 0.005072965010581285 to 0.0076609711081375015

Thank you for the report.

Verified as described.

Noted in 5.7.8, 5.8.0 changelogs.

Multiple calls to ST_Intersection() could return inconsistent results
for some arguments.

Issues were resolved by use of Boost.Geometry for GIS algorithms.
