Just as a little report. Fields are open now.
Searching for country was fine, not working is the region currently (at 
least on Austria), I have all cities placed in the region of Kaernten 

Well, I have no clue how the matching is done, and whether this is 
actually a bug in the boundary data (could be well possible due to 
geofabrik cutting, leaving Kaernten as open polygon, and maybe reversing 
it like the flooding of sea on country side (instead of blue sea).
This is running on location-autofill=1

I do think that even if mkgmap will eventually do everything correct 
here- it will never work 100% as one expect, because boundaries are 
simply often wrong/incomplete and difficult to match all points inside a 
polygon). Of course better having it than not having it...
