Usually, I get 88220001.img through 88220176.img, in this case mkgmap 
produced 88220001.img through 88220352.img, but with no obvious 
duplicates. I could not reproduce this weird behaviour, all successive 
calls created 176 files as expected.

But on a different note: The size of the .imgs has doubled since I last 
updated them and it barely fits into a 1GB SD card. How much space does 
the --index data take? Is there a way to leave out the indices and/or 
some other data to create leaner image files? I am working on a topo 
map, so I really only need the geometry and the searches are secondary.
