[mkgmap-dev] Do we write the region and/or country index wrongly? Still not able to search addresses outside of current maptile on etrex vista hcx

Ok, here are my observations with the index and address search

Mapssource with opemmtbmap Germany 28.10.2009:
If i give the City in City field and then choose a street out of the 
"Choose street" window i got always " no element found.
If i give instead the City in German federal Land/Province field and 
then choose a street out of the "Chosse street" window i got the

GPS 60csx with opemmtbmap Germany 28.10.2009:
 if i try to enter a city in the city tab of the address search, i got a 
"no found"(immediately if i enter the first character.) I have to enter 
the full city name like Clinton mentioned.
But if i have entered city name, streetname, housenumber no address is 
found.Only then deleting the city helps.
The only way to search is to enter a housenumber and  a street, then i 
get a list of similar named streets in different citys(as far if there 
are), but also the attempt to reduce the search result by entering the 
city fails as i describe above.
Only if i directly choose one out of the search result it will be found.

an index, address search dont'work.
Together with a Metroguide only the metroguide index  works.
Together with an other mkgmap map address search don't work for any of 
the maps.(e.g openmtbmap De + own mkgmap created trailmap)

Address search works with multiple tiles out of a mapset (tested with 4
