I might have found it, or at least part of the problem.
In your map there are 10 cities without a name, created from polygons.

Since there are around 500 cities in the map, this is closer to 1 in 50 
than 1 in 10-20 so might not be everything -- do you see more than 10 or 
is it possible that is the total number of blank lines?

It does include the two example you gave however. Both these are place=* 
polygons, with place_name instead of name.

You probably can and should try to use the place_name tag to give
the name, but I think that we should also prevent any unnamed cities 
from getting into the map file.
