Hi, ive tried Tims patch and i must say im pretty happy with it. Tnx Tim!

I dont need to filter data depending on number of features
(maxfeatures), but to show all the currently available data for area,
then the cluster strategy jumps in and takes care that there are not
too many features rendered. Perfect.

Now the only problem is that one when upon activateing layer, it has
to be nudged a bit for features to load (moveend effect)
