Sorry, I was typing "nominatim" when I should have typed "namefinder".

All versions of Marble which get shipped with Linux Distributions are using 
namefinder (and _not_  nominatim). :-(

Unfortunately the problem still exists.
The only version that has nominatim support is the Marble version that just 
got released a few days ago. However that one is not significantly deployed 
yet. All Linux distributions are still shipping Marble with the namefinder in 
their most recent version. :-( So the issue is going to persist for about the 
next 6 months.

In that light could you answer my other questions?

Best Regards & Thanks in advance,
