Can't find city which exists. "Autocorrect" may be the cause

Search for the town Villeneuve-la-Garenne in France ( ). I can't get any result even though it does exist (as the previous link just proves).

Worse, it's autocorrected as "Villeneuve-lousiana-Garenne" on the web interface, see

Nominatim has an evil hack to allow finding US states that abbreviate to common articles. Restricted the hack now to cases where IL/LA/AL are properly separated with commas. That should fix the issue except for a few minor edge cases.
