#4808 new defect

special translating problem with german umlaut from non-umlaut-word

Searching for "An der Hexenbruecke, Germersheim" returns no result. But "An der Hexenbrücke, Germersheim" hits the right street. This is the first time i found this kind of translation problems from non-Umlaut to Umlaut.

"Koenigsberger Str., Koeln" returns "Königsberger Str,. Köln" successfully.

A clash between transliteration (ue -> u) and abbreviation (brucke -> br). It's currently done in reverse order which means the abbreviation is not found for bruecke.

It should be fairly easy to fix but changes in the transliteration system require a reimport of the database (or at least it is strongly recommended), so this will have to wait a bit.
