In QGIS2 (stable version, MacOSX Mavericks), the calculation of the area of objects within a polygon layer seems to be wrong.
Both project and Layer have UTM29N/WGS84 CRS. By opening the attributes table, activate edit, open field calculator, make a new field, choose Integer real and calculate area with "$area", results have nothing to do with the object geometry properties. Version 2.1 beta seems to calculate the area just fine.
Example project and data attached.
