I don't know where it expects the map data (probably also in ~/Maps),
but omgps also uses the folder/map data structure created by tgps.
My point was just to be able to set the "map root", the location of the
Maps folder. Data structure in it is the same for omgps, gps and agt

I didn't experience a single crash the maybe 15 minutes I was playing
round (clicking options at random) with it, that's a good omen :)
