Can you explain why the results of the QGIS Spatial Difference and/or Difference functions are not satisfactory? – MappaGnosis Jan 4 '13 at 13:23

Check the geometries of your shapes before mixing them. Also try to assign both shapes the same projection. – Curlew Jan 4 '13 at 13:38
Geometries and projection are ok.. – user8839 Jan 4 '13 at 14:09
You might try another free GIS package - gvSIG, MapWindow, OpenJump, uDig, Grass. – klewis Jan 4 '13 at 14:30
