If anyone else needs a workround for this, I noticed this issue when I 
rebuilt my Garmin maps the other day, and resolved it at least for now 
by commenting out the lines.

# place=island & name=* [0x53 resolution 19]
# place=islet & name=* [0x53 resolution 20]

from the 'polygons' style file. It was particularly irritating, because 
as well as the name scattered everywhere, it put a hatch pattern over 
the whole island (at least when viewed in BaseCamp)!
