[mkgmap-dev] label rendering

On my Montana, those settings don't seem to do anything.   I am getting 
better labels than with qmapshack, some primary hwy labels with level 
2-6, not much change from 2-6, some additional labels at level 
1/res23.   I wonder if part of the problem may be that the names are 
very long, I'll try substituting the 'ref' tag instead 'name' & see if 
that helps.

I've mostly been using QMapShack for my debugging.   It's actually worse 
than the Garmin Montana.    I have some primary highway labels showing 
up at level0/res 24, along with other road labels.  It's inconsistent 
though,  1 of the primary highways labels doesn't show up with any 

I get the same results with my downloaded Openfietsmap Lite maps.

Is this something that we can't control?
