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?
