tango and the missing map tiles

Hi all,

I've found that if tango doesn't have a working net connection available 
when you pan around it will generate empty files for the map images and 
then never attempt to re-download them leaving nasty gaps in your coverage.

Here's a quick n dirty script that removes all the empty files so that 
tango will fetch them next time.

root at om-gta02:~# cat cleanmapcache.sh

#!/bin/sh -v
find Maps/OSM/ -size 0 -type f
find Maps/OSM/ -size 0 -type f -exec rm {} \;

The first line displays the empty tile list, the second deletes them.

Feel free to stick this on the wiki or something. I don't know if this 
needs a bug report.
