I see behavior like this with routes when I test the routing graph in 
MapSource. I created the map in gpsmapedit, and when I test the routes 
in this program they work correctly, but the same route after compiling 
with mkgmap will give  strange routes, with straight-line jumps. If goes 
the wrong direction on a road for what looks like the correct distance, 
then jumps back to where it should have been and continues.
