throught out road-name-pois from all loaded maps, and i bet that city 
search works correctly afterwards! (well I'm not sure which city 
categories are searchable, some are not showing up in search - but 
that's a style-file problem).
(except the usual mkgmap problem of messing up Umlauts and their like in 
the search function - so best don't use --latin1 or another codepage, 
then one can search cities with Umlauts too).
