[mkgmap-dev] Commit: r1054: When subdivision fails to reduce number of nodes, report bbox and croak.

From Felix Hartmann extremecarver at googlemail.com on Wed Jun 3 15:08:23 BST 2009

For me this is the same. However why did this problem not appear until now?

a) has something in mkgmap changed
b) is there some tool out that destructs osm data by mistake?
