Hi radioman,

In the latest build tiles outside the range provide by MinZoom and MaxZoom are cached in the background. In the stable 1.6 release this is not an issue.

Debug output:
A first chance exception of type 'System.Net.WebException' occurred in System.dll
GetImageFrom: System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.

ZoomLevel 6 does not exists on the tile server.
MaxZoom is set to 19 and MinZoom is set to 11.

For now I use this work around in the custom provider:
   private int internalMinZoom = 11;
   private int internalMaxZoom = 19;

  public override PureImage GetTileImage(GPoint pos, int zoom)
     // no use to return zoom levels the tile server doesn't provide
     if (zoom < internalMinZoom && zoom > internalMaxZoom) return null;

     string url = MakeTileImageUrl(pos, zoom, LanguageStr);
     PureImage tileImage;
     tileImage = GetTileImageUsingHttp(url);
     if (tileImage == null)
         tileImage = TileImageProxy.FromArray(GetBlankImage());

     return tileImage;

you can set MaxZoom/MinZoom in your custom provider constructor, but even without limits set in provider, map settings itself doesn't allow that, works fine in other providers too
