It is not broken - all ACA1230 are like this. We have cut that part of the PCB away on all boards to make installation easier. This has been done prior to wave-soldering. Some boards have the white paint replaced with solder in that area, but since it's just a GND plane and no signals, it does not matter.

Its just a "massefläche", I guess in swedish that is "massor" and fläche is spot "fläck", its just a workspot.
"not a problem" is correct, but let me help a little on the other terms:

"Massefläche" is a ground plane, a typical German noun composed of two nouns "Masse" (=the signal ground) and "Fläche" (area or plane). These areas are also called "copper pours" in the CAD world.
