Thanks for the bug report.

A small change resulting in the indexing code treating capital cities as villages (and therefore miss-calculating their importance in addresses. I've fixed this on the test server - can you check this is now correct?

Thanks Brian.

There a still a few suburbs under the wrong city. Just tell me when, and what URL to use, and I will request them to be updated.  http://searchindex.open.mapquest.com/details.php?place_id=128259
