My eTrex Legen HCx crashes under these circumstances:

I have made 133 OSM map tiles and 82 SRTM tiles, built with r1733. If I
combine the southern 58 OSM + 58 SRTM into a gmapsupp.img with mkgmap
(no Mapsource involved) it doesn't crash. If I combine the northern 84 +
17 SRTM it doen't crash. But if I combine all 133 OSM + 82 SRTM tiles it
crashes when doing a "Search for city".

The big map is 2.3 GB, if that might matter.

Yes, 58 + 84 is more than 133, there is an overlap ;-)
