I made quite some tests the last two days with it.

In principle the result is much better then with trunk, but
sometimes I see really bad choices, like leaving a highway
and using a primary/secondary street only to go back to the
highway a little bit later. Or using highways which are much
longer then the direct highway.
What I found out: this happens always if the direct route
would cross a tile border.
And I'm not sure if this is really only a problem of the branch,
because I can now see similar problems on trunk, too :(

I have two styles: "streets", which contains only bigger routes
and very few POIs, thus has really big tiles. Here the routing
is very good.
The second style, "basemap", contains all streets and a huge amount
of POIs, thus small tiles. Here I suddenly see similar problems.
So looks like at some point we introduced a problem with routing
via tile borders, at least with MapSource.
I'm currently trying to find out when this got worse.
