I see this with --index and without --index. So yes, it looks like
the index itself has nothing to do with the problem.
Going back to mkgmap-r1866 solved the problem for both cases for me.

Yes, I'm not installing via mapsource, but copy the gmapsupp.img
file directly to the device. It's a GPSmap 62s. I can try
the 60CSx tonight, too, haven't done yet.
