Ah, thanks, somehow missed it there.

Ok, at least mapsource 6.15.7 is sorting the lines alphabetical.
Which means even the original mkgmap text is reodered. Looks funny
and of course the text in reodered form doesn't make sense anymore :(
And empty lines are not allowed.
Else it works as expected.

On the device, both are shown. In mapsource: didn't tested it yeet.

But my expectation is: mapsource will get all lines, sort them
alphabetical and show the unique ones.
