Nominatim using wrong relation for county outline

Searches for Farmville, Virginia (spans Prince Edward and Cumberland counties) describe it as being in Appomattox County; viewing Appomattox County in the Nominatim database (3665338557) displays the same map as that of Prince Edward County (3665865857, which is correct), but it does correctly report Appomattox County as being represented by multipolygon relation 2534165, and clicking on the link to that relation shows the correct outline for Appomattox County. It doesn't appear to be bad data in the main OSM database (the relations and names are correct), so I guess it's a Nominatim bug of some sort.

The recent boundary cleanup in Virginia has caused a bit of confusion in Nominatim. The problem is that Nominatim does not update relations when a member way is changed and therefore ended up with the occasional mesh-up of old and new data. The counties above are now clean. Let me know if there are further problems.
