It seems that if I have the old geometry on screen, then I can add the island;

A colleague of mine discovered something more: after that I have already added
an island to the geometry (both drawed on the screen together), then I'm able
to add other islands even if the old ones are not drawed on screen anymore.
Am I missing something or what?
PS: The underlying problem is that I'm trying to export this shapefile from
PostGIS, including even rows without geometry; AFAIK this cannot be done, so
I put a fake geometry (in a fixed, known position) when exporting a row
having a null geometry.
Then someone else should edit this shapefile using QGIS and add an island to
such row to draw the real geometry it should have.
Finally, when importing the shapefile in PostGIS again, the fake geometry will
