I am not sure if I understand you correct: Northern Ireland is always 
correct (which means abbrevation is GBR) whereas Republic of Ireland is 
always incorrect (which means abbreveation is the value of 
--country-abbr). Did you mean that?

Anyhow you provided two error messages as examples. Both are located in 
the country Republic of Ireland.

The first way shows the problem very good. The mkgmap:admin_level2 tag 
is set to IE, so there must be a precompiled boundary with the tags 
admin_level=2 and nameXXX=IE where nameXXX is one of the tags set by 
name-tag-list. I have searched the precompiled bounds of Oct 16th (you 
are using them?) but I couldn't find such a boundary so far. So at the 
moment I have no idea about the problem...

I have downloaded the world_bounds_20111106.tar.gz. I do not have 
problems unpacking it. I have used 7-zip to create the tar.gz. Maybe 
that causes a problem?

Thanks, I will try that.
