[mkgmap-dev] Problem with --road-name-pois

I think this has not yet been mentioned on the mailing-list:

There seems to be some code missing in the road-name-pois. I changed the 
ID to several values that if used inside the Points file, would be 
findable with the search function. If however I use the same ID for the 
-road-name-pois option, then I can only find the roadname via the all 
points of interstest, via the category, but not via the subcategory.
For Mapsource this makes no great difference, but on my Vista HCx it 
means that if I can't search via subcategory, the maximum distance in 
cities is around 10km to find a streetname by using category/find 
nearest containing.....
If I could go via category/select subcategory/find nearest containing, 
the actual distance could be bigger, so the function would be more useful.

(Well a real search index which supports searching for name and city and 
not just name would be much much better, so I don't know if anyone of 
you is interested in bugcoding this).
