[mkgmap-dev] Routing does not work since December.

I wanted to report that routing through Europe is broken.  I have
noticed it in December 2009, but did not report it then because I
thought that my nüvi got broken.

I generate my maps always with latest svn HEAD using the following commands:
java -Xmx3000m -jar splitter.jar --max-nodes=400000 europe.osm.bz2 --cache=/tmp
java -Xmx3600m -jar mkgmap.jar --index --description="EU" --route
--series-name=OSM_EU --remove-short-arcs --description=OSM_EU_routing
--tdbfile --add-pois-to-areas *.osm.gz
The maps get written to destination img file using MapSource 6.13.7.

The input file is Europe extract from Geofabrik.

Routing between splitted parts always fails on MapSource 6.13.7 (is
there a newer version working with wine?).
Routing with nüvi 660 fails on some parts of my route, but is able to
compute route from Leipzig to Gdańsk, where MapSource does not.

To test that try routing from Karlsruhe to Gdańsk.  Usually between
Nürnberg and Leipzig my nüvi crashes multiple times (one tap on on/off
button restarts the nüvi).

I hope it is possible to fix it...
