[mkgmap-dev] routing seems to depend on order of ways

Hi all,

really confusing...
The strange bug disappears in MapSource (6.16.3) when I (re-)activate option
"Try to avoid.."

In Basecamp (4.25) , the bug appears as well when I deactivate "Feature type

Regarding the order of the ways in the OSM file:
It seems that the only important way is w3. If that appears as first way,
is crazy. 
I think the reason is the order of the calculated routing nodes that
Because of the gate the the way w4 is spit into 3 parts, and the calculated
route seems to depend on
the order of the routing nodes related to way w4. If w3 comes first, the
node that connects 
it with w4 also comes first, else it comes later. 

I have no idea how to find the "right" order in a network. 
In NOD3, we sort the nodes "lexicographically by longitude, then latitude".
Maybe we should do the same for NOD1?
