Strange layers over support structure relating to infill type

Hi all, I have posted something similar to this before, but thought it was solved.

In the picture, I'm showing the first layer above some support structure (designed by me, not put in by Cura), and as you can see it's not printing out solid! It does this strange thing of laying down the infill instead.

Any ideas? I'll include a link to the model, would really appreciate it if anybody could take a look please. Just orientate it so the support structure is at the bottom, and choose an infill of say 50%, 20%, whatever really. There are odd things going on everywhere, including the solid layer BELOW the main support structure.

The gaps between the model and the first layer of support structure are 0.5mm. The gap between the top of the support structure and the first supported layer of the model is 0.2mm.

Cheers,

Matt.

    Uncheck the setting "Ignore small z gaps". It will cause a small performance hit during slicing but shouldn't be much of an issue.
