I wondered about odd results in my map and found them being caused by 
wired Nominatim results.

I have Places with Street, PLZ and City and I try to find a Coordinate 
for it. A sample would be "Kirchgasse, 65185 Wiesbaden"

When querying Nominatim with it, I'll get the correct result back but 
not as the first item but as the third one. The first item is a street 
in another city around 50km away:


How can this result be explained and how can I more accurate results?
