This is bug 387738 [Launchpad refuses to believe that I don't live in
Russia, near the Kazakhstan border]

Something has changed in either Google and/or geonames; our code passes
data betweenthem and has not changed in many months. This is the first
time the problem has affected users i North America and Sweden. This is
new information. All the other cases were near Greenwich, which implied
a problem near 0 longitude.
