[mkgmap-dev] bugreport for new splitter

From Chris Miller chris.miller at kbcfp.com on Sun Aug 9 13:14:14 BST 2009

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the detailed bug report, and sorry for the inconvenience this 
one has caused you. It looks like there's a bug in the new code for handling 
ways that span > 4 areas. I'll take a look shortly and hopefully have a fix 
later today.

As an aside, I see you have set --max-areas=100. Given that you have a 4GB 
heap and --max-nodes at just 300000, you should easily be able to get away 
with the default of --max-areas=255. From my (limited) experiements so far, 
with a 4GB heap you shouldn't need to worry about reducing max-areas until 
your max-nodes gets up somewhere near 1,000,000. Setting it to a lower value 
will just cause the split to run slower.
