Mapnik uses only external data (world_boundaries.tar.bz2, linked to on
the wiki) to render coastlines - the stuff you draw in as
natural=coastline is ignored completely. I'm not sure why the data
breaks when you zoom in some areas (such as Australia, but people have
also complained about it in other countries).
