I was thinking that maxBlock is 240*240 when the block size is 512 and
not 0xfffe.  Sure, the logic to set that may be better elsewhere.

Have you not tried it?

A gmapsupp should be fine since it adjusts the block size so that
there is only one header file directory block required.  The Mdr index
just uses a 4k block size always and so there is a maximum size for

I believe that qlandkarte mostly ignores the block numbers and so
might not be affected.

OK, but we need to find out if the directory file can really have more
