RESOLUTION: The way to resolve this problem is to set the zoomlevel lower to where all the icons become visible when the map renders.
WILL THIS BE FIXED IN A FUTURE GMAPS BUILD? Yes. I do plan on fixed that in my next “official” build that is released. In the meantime, I will publish a class file to the download site and instructions on how to install it without having uninstall the component after I have it tested further.
