Garvan, IMHO you misconcept real boundary overlay with the overview map
overlay. There is in my opinion a problem that overview maps sometimes get
created smaller than the actual map (i.e. when using gmaptool to create the
mp overview map). I don't use mkgmap for overview map creation  because it
long was pretty buggy. Then in Mapsource maps will be cut off, while the
data actually continues.

Try a huge overview map (i.e. whole of europe) with your maps, to see if it
is not an overview map problem instead of a real map data failure.
