My point is ... does anybody actually know where it is broken?
It is not the 'is_in' tag ... that isn't used to determine location ... last
time I tried looking at this problem in the UK nobody seemed to know how the
location was ACTUALLY generated :( It looks to the 'administrative boundaries'
areas and so presumably someone has been playing with them? It's a pain trying
to find what has been 'modified' ...
( No bloody politics here RB !!! )
