Only the resolutions in your base layer are respected. Individual
resolution values on all overlay layers are ignored. When your map
changes resolution, layer.calculateInRange is called for each overlay
layer. If this returns false, the layer is not displayed.
The layer.calculateInRange method checks layer.minResolution and
layer.maxResolution. If map.getResolution returns a value that is
between the min/max for the layer (inclusive), calculateInRange returns
true. (The exception to this is when layer.alwaysInRange is true.)
If you are encountering a situation where calculateInRange does not
return the appropriate value, or if you think the precision in the scale
to resolution conversion is not consistent, please start a new thread
(this has nothing to do with vector layers or the cluster strategy).
