Haha OK, I'll bear that tip in mind ;) Thanks for clarifying.

I haven't yet had time to read through and understand everything in the thread 
Valentijn pointed at (http://www.mkgmap.org.uk/pipermail/mkgmap-dev/2009q3/002789.html) 
but my impression is that the conclusion was that the splitter should be 
rounding areas off to boundaries in multiples of 4096 rather than 2048? If 
that's so I'll have a look at fixing that tonight (hopefully it's as simple 
as setting SPLIT = 12 for AreaSplitter.limit(), DivisionParser.round()).
