What is needed that you need the *same* code-page as was used
to create the map. It works as far as I can tell even without
any latin1 or code-page argument as long as everything is
created without a code page.

I will add a note in the help about that.

It shouldn't be too difficult to read the code-page and sort
order that the individual tiles use and create the index
with the same ones.  If I have time I will have a look at doing that.
