      Hi Lynn,
       
      For some reason I thought the aging was dropped until today. I had surfed around an area and it started to queue up mores tiles. If this option was selectable, I would like it. ;)
       
      Thanks!
      Fred

      If tiles are being fetched as part of the normal process, they are
      dropped from the queue if you move around or zoom in and out enough that
      it no longer makes sense to retrieve the older ones in the queue
      (actually, queued elements are aged every time you zoom in or out and
      are expired if they get too old).

      Tile fetches queued as a direct result of Screen / Map / Prefetch are
      not aged and are fetched regardless of what else you do to the map,
      including possibly moving or zooming and then activating Screen / Map /
      Prefetch again and again and again. You can build up quite a fetch
      list such that the yellow circle can take hours to finally clear.
