Crash on compiling recent south american OSM maps.


A recent change to data in Columbia, South America in Open Street Map may cause a problem when creating a map of that area.

There is a long standing bug in mkgmap that results in a crash when compiling the object http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/313259878 which is in Columbia. The addr:housenumber is ":702" which triggers the bug. Probably that is just a typo and it should be just "702", however this should not cause a crash in mkgmap.

The problem is now fixed in r3354, so you should upgrade if affected by this problem. I think you will only see it if using the --add-pois-to-areas option.

Due to the nature of the fix, the resulting .img files may be a little smaller than before.
