OK ... turns out I'm only getting that problem with zoom levels 3 and 4
... switch to 5 and I have a nice view of the UK!

And actually this part is also working fine now I know what I'm looking
at. Right click on a tile -> view image -> remove the :20008 -> tile

What I am not sure about is just where the tiles are being cached? My
disk layout is a little unconventional as the SSD disk is not big enough
for everything, so /tmp is a separate disk, and /srv/maps has all of the
planet and postgres directories along with the openstreetmap-carto
project, but both views into that seem to be building their own tiles?
