Description

Searching for "Jülich" or "Julich" only finds:

http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/?q=Julich

but not:

http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/details.php?place_id=49996543

Name: Jülich, Stadt (name) Type: boundary:adminitrative Admin Level: 8 Rank: City Coverage: Polygon

Unless, one uses "Search for more results".

Searching for "Jülich, Stadt" (w/ and w/o quotes) does not help either, but restricts the results to place=town.

IMO this is the result of broken data.

The name of the admin boundary is 'Jülich'. Calling it 'Jülich, Stadt' is tagging for renderer and as a result breaks other uses of the data.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
