[mkgmap-dev] Address search on device with --x-split-name-index option

Hi all,

not sure how this works on other devices. I have a map containing a part of the alps with parts of Germany, Switzerland and France.
On my Oregon 600 when I search for an address I have some dialogs
1) select a country (I select Switzerland)
2) select city or select "search all"
3) Enter Street name. I can type a few characters and press enter. The device presents a list of road names matching the selected characters.
4) Last is to enter the house number.  I can leave it empty to search for streets.

If I select a city (Feuerthalen)in step 2) everything seems to work fine. It lists "Obere Rheingasse" as well as "Rheingasse" when I enter "Rheinga".
If I select "search all" the results are weird. Sometimes I get "no result, change search parameters", sometimes results look ok.

When I change the code in mdr20 to ignore the additional entries produced with the "--x-split-name-index" option the problem seems to be solved,
I just don't find "Obere Rheingasse" when I search for "Rheingasse".

Does anybody see better results in this case with a map produced  with trunk?
