This is what I have at the moment:

levels = 0:24, 1:22, 2:21, 3:20, 4:19, 5:18, 6:16, 7:12

I also (try) to make sure that only these resolutions are used in the 
lines and points file. I seem to recall that the mkgmap default style at 
the time (about 3 months ago) used some resolutions that weren't defined 
in options file. I guessed that maybe extra levels were being created 
inside mkgmap, which caused the total number of levels to exceed the 
maximum a map file can cope with and that maybe this caused the 
background to disappear as I zoomed out.

This was about 3 months ago and I have no idea if the two issues were 
truely connected.
