This is not a Nominatim bug. El Salvador is tagged with is_in=North America. See: http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/node/424311802.

In any case, there is no agreement whether the Americas are one or two continents. When considered as two continents El Salvador is generally counted as part of North America. So please don't change this until you have talked to the OSM community and have gotten some kind of agreement.
