Nominatim Places City into a Different Country

Description

Search for Aachen. The first two results are:

"Aachen, Kreis Heinsberg, Belgium (City)" (relation details, point details)

Only the third result has correctly:

"Aachen, Städteregion Aachen, Köln, North Rhine-Westphalia, Aachen, Germany (Postcode)" (relation details)

Thus, "Belgium" is wrong as it is in Germany" (Though not far from the Dutch and Belgium border.)

Additionally the district is wrong. Aachen is not in the district (Kreis) "Heinsberg" but forms its own district "city-region" (Stadtregion) "Aachen". Note: The District Heinsberg (north of Aachen) has a border with the District Aachen and with the Netherlands, but it does not have any border with Belgium!

The correct hierarchy is:

Replying to matti@…:

This seems to be fixed

But not fully. Go to: http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=51.02057&lon=6.11393&zoom=15 Click on "Where am I?" and Nominatim claims:

Heinsberg, Stadt, 52525, Belgium

Or simply search for Heinsberg in that area: http://open.mapquestapi.com/nominatim/v1/search.php?q=Heinsberg&viewbox=6.08%2C51.04%2C6.14%2C51.01

That shows: "Heinsberg, B 221, Heinsberg, Stadt, Belgium"

If one searches further for the city itself, it finds correctly: "Heinsberg, Kreis Heinsberg, Regierungsbezirk Köln, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, Europe (Town)"
