Ta for the patch; just committed to trunk.

Thanks. I've opened up the bug report/feature request system at
https://garage.maemo.org/tracker/?group_id=830 so that in theory anyone
can raise bugs without having to get themselves a garage account. Should
ease the process...

Now *that* would be a worthwhile new feature. If you're using it on an
n810 of course, you can use the rather excellent maemo-mapper to zoom in
and get a view; it's still a little clunky though. Having something
built-in would be interesting.

Anybody out there have a GPL3-compatible GTK2 slippy map coordinate
selector widget coded up in C? :) Ideally goocanvas-based....
