Noticed that when trying to compile on Fedora Core... both Debian (sarge
and unstable) and Mandrake 10.1 must include <math.h> in something else.
Will try and get round to fixing it...

One thing I have noticed about my Garmin GPS (etrex legend) is the first
logged point is always utter nonsense, whatever the reception's like -
guess that must be due to what you've just described.

ATM you cannot completely delete a trkseg... on the todo list as always :-)
ATM my priority is Ajaxifying Freemap but again, when I (or someone else)
gets round to it....
