No, maybe you could check if your last shown polygon disappears at the 
same level as set in polygons style-file (is it 2km Mapsource or GPS, I 
assume GPS?)
Maybe putting a polygon into resolution=16 (i.e. take water=yes & 
name=Bodensee (if rendering Germany)) and see if that helps.

Report back if you can see any way to change the behaviour (other than 
changing mapdetail in gps to more/most)
