We're seeing problems with users updating their location on

in the middle of Russia after clicking update. This occurred
for one user in North America and another in Sweden.

I suspect this has something to do with dragging at a low-res
zoom level, then zooming in and dragging further without pressing update in between but I haven't experimented with
it systematically.

I can try some further experiments, but I thought I'd check
to see if this is a known problem first.

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.

I'm also affected by the bug (my location is Barcelona, Spain), and I end up located somewhere off the coast of Georgia. I had filed https://bugs.launchpad.net/launchpad/+bug/392864, so I marked it as duplicate of https://bugs.launchpad.net/launchpad-registry/+bug/387738.
