[mkgmap-dev] Distance Icon - Text (typ file question)

I think I have to explain more precisely, my english seems not to be 
good enough.

When I use new, selfdrawn icons via Typ file, the name that belongs to 
the POI marked by the icon is farer away from the icon than it would 
have been from an original Garmin icon. I used the online typ file 
editor (http://ati.land.cz/)
 From the right upper corner, the label has a distance of 3 Pixels 
(diagonal) when a Garmin icon is shown, but 10 pixels, if my own icons 
are used.

If a user defined waypoint is labelled, the label sits right above the 
icon, centered (that is the best way, I think).

Does anybody know, if this behaviour is somehow coded inside the typ 
file? Or does mkgmap define the position and distance of the label?

I think on small displays 10 pixels is way too much, so it would be 
really fine to be able to change that. Perhaps it is a not yet 
understood byte inside the typ file?

TIA, Dani
