Bug report #5224
'Merge selected features' tool creates invalid MULTIPOLYGON instead of POLYGON geometry

In some cases, 'Merge selected feature' tool creates invalid MULTIPOLYGON instead of possible single POLYGON geometry.
This makes a problem in case, when layer supports only single POLYGON geometries. This problem can be avoided, when all nodes of one of the features are moved and returned back to the same place using 'Node tool' before merge.
Example data is attached. I also did test with merging the geometries using PostGIS - correct single polygon was returned.
