Why does the background colour change in Mapnik from zoom level 18 to 17?


"Background" changes from grey to violet / pink.

The behaviour is the same in this area for IE8 and FF3.6 .

Although the areas you linked are not longer affected, there are many others that are still affected:

I have not clue if it is related, but the North Pole and South Pole are rendered close to Africa:

Thank you for adding a comment to the respectiv trac:

That seems to be a bug in the renderer or an old style-file for this tile.

That should be fixed soon.

If nor or if you notice other bugs you can report them at the trac. Select "mapnik" as Component.

The trac ticket linked below is still open, and the area linked in the ticket is still affected.

EDIT: there is a trac ticket for it it's apparently all over the world.

I don't think this is a stylesheet issue. I rerendered both zoom layers today:
