[OSM-dev] Bug: Mapnik renders 'addr:housenumber' rather than 'name'

An example can be seen at:

Where the tags for the node are (grabbed using Merkaator):
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<osm version='0.6' generator='Merkaartor'>
<bound box='37.048527,-122.031341,37.048527,-122.031341'
origin='http://www.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6' />
  <node id="484131847" lat="37.04852652" lon="-122.03134102">
    <tag k="addr:housenumber" v="266A"/>
    <tag k="name" v="Payless Shoe"/>
    <tag k="shop" v="shoe"/>
    <tag k="addr:street" v="Mount Hermon Road"/>
    <tag k="addr:city" v="Scotts Valley"/>
    <tag k="addr:postcode" v="95066-4024"/>
    <tag k="addr:phone" v="(831) 438-1866"/>

Is the algorithm that decides what text to render relying on the order?
