I just tried it out with a map created with rev 1260 - so before the 
reverse index implementation. and it DOES WORK - at least so far I can 
tell (this is exporting with Mapsource 6.13.7)

1. I used the same gmapsupp.img on my Vista HCx and going to find --> 
cities --> find by name I can find all cities and they pop up by name 
2. Recheck with identical map but deleted mapset00_mdr.img from registry 
- cities --> find by name --> I can only find cities present in the 
basemap (american) - not in my tile of Austria. So I do assume the 
search index in step 2 must have been created correctly, if it fails 
when not having the mdr registerd in Mapsource.

I don't know where the difference lies as I do assume you had the mdr 
well registered in Mapsource too. Somehow a bit strange or?
