he Identify tool works in a strange (to me) way for inverted polygons: you have to click inside the polygon, but then the red (identified) area is on the outside, giving an ugly effect, difficult to understand. I would thing the red area should be inside the polygon.

From a UX perspective I certainly agree that identify highlights should be consistent independent of the configured renderer option.
