Description

When searching for Maubeuge, the two first results are wrong, as they place this city in Belgium instead of France, although the postal code is correct. The third result returns a small hamlet or locality bearing the same name and located in an other French region.

This error (Belgium instead of France) is also encountered for several other cities or towns in the administrative area of Maubeuge. (test 'Hautmont'...)

This is related to the fact that France uses a non-standard way of defining its borders using relations of relations. Until that is resolved (or osm2pgsql is extended to support this data format) this can't be fixed.
