[mkgmap-dev] Address index changes in dev-index branch

Sorry for the long time to reply.

Yes enabling/disabling the map does help. It also works without 
enabling/disabling, as long as I use a different MapID.
Also, unlike your testcase, I get no crash if map is disabled, and it 
seems the GPS reception doesn't matter if I enable/disable.

So I think you can commit the branch. Nevertheless, it would be cool, if 
mkgmap could generate the POI the way Mapsource/Basecamp do, just to 
make sure it's more on the same standard, if possible. I noticed that 
people who created maps for the GPS with mkgmap and address search, 
instead of using Mapsource/Basecamp where more likely to run into the 
"memory full" bug (which is however corrected in the newest generation 
firmwares, but it will take some time till everyone uses the newest 
generation firmwares).
