I had a similar problem with my Garmin etrex Legend HCx. Routing calculation 
doesnt't stop. But here there is an Abort-Button but nothing happens when 
clicking it. I can not do anything afterwards. Even worse the route 
calculation starts immediately after a restart. So I had to remove the memory 
card to get the Garmin out of this loop. Unfortunately the Garmin didn't like 
that much and did a complete reset - I had to do all configurations again and 
all tracks/waypoint were lost :-(

I avoided using the routing afterwards. Just wanted to give it a try today 
using different versions of mkgmap. I hope to find a version which does not 
create this infinite loops to give a hint when this bug was introduced...
