Georss feeds with multipart polygons

I am finding that both ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Viewer for flex do not support georss feeds with multi-part polygons.  I have added a feed http://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/feeds/majorIncidents.xml to a flex viewer and have also tried adding it to a layer in arcgis online.  Where there are multipart polygons only one part is being displayed. 

Interestingly, when I add the same feed to Google maps it displays correctly with all parts.  Has anyone else encountered this?  Is there a workaround?

Test arcgis online map:

Google test - just paste http://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/feeds/majorIncidents.xml into the search bar of google maps.  You will see that the google one has many more polygons.

Cheers,
Ben
