I noticed that you do not set the region name or abbreviation. Perhaps you could try that? I seem to be getting pretty consistent results, but I always compile with the following options:

--country-name="$OSM_COUNTRY" --country-abbr=$OSM_COUNTRY_ABR \
--region-name="$OSM_REGION" --region-abbr=$OSM_REGION_ABR \

(With appropriate variable substitution, of course.)
