[mkgmap-dev] Recent crashes when searching on device

1. If you have this error, please also check if link-pois-to-ways switch 
was used. According to a post here: 
the address search breaks down on Oregon once --link-pois-to-ways is used.

2. Check that the mgkmap version you are using to compile the maps, is 
the same or newer than the one that was used to create the maps. If you 
create the index with an older version than 1871 (also if it is from the 
index branch) against maps created with rev 1871, then Mapsource crashes 
on selecting maps. Hence very probable that if you create gmapsupp with 
mkgmap but the mkgmap version is older than the one used to build the 
maps, the GPS will choke too in some way or another.
