Ok, so there IS NO NOD flag. I really haven't expected this result, but 
seems the case here.

Two things come to my mind.
1. Could it be a matter of draw priority? Maybe the routable map needs a 
higher drawing priority to be in front? In the other case routing will 
be tried on the non-routable map and fail.

2. Could it have to do something with the detailed map/basemap flag? To 
write a patch for this bit should not be that complicated, but iirc 
setting this bit breaks routing.
