I wonder whether you might have some size 0 pads that are forcing
a clearance in the planes. If this is the case then selecting 
"all on layer" on the ground plane won't help, since they'll
be multilayer components.

Try selecting all pads on the board and see if the weird bits
get selected too.

That's all I can think of.
