Yes, it's in gconf as /apps/foxtrotgps/global_detail_zoom, though
gconf is currently queried only at startup--so you can't induce changes
in a running instance of foxtrotgps by `sneaking in the back door'
and twiddling gconf parameters.
But my guess as to why you're not seeing the details shrink would be
that you don't have actually have the higher-detail tiles: if you zoom in
to level 10, for example, but have tiles only up to level 9, then it'll
`overzoom'--the idea being that a less-detailed or blurry section
on the map is better than an *empty* section.
