I've been getting some "bug" reports of users of my Twitter client
Gravity since yesterday evening.

The mapping of "places" for coordinates North of London seems to be
buggy.

Geotagging a tweet with latitude 52.41 and longitude -1.90 (somewhere
near Birmingham, UK) claims that this is a place in Alaska, US!

{"place":{"place_type":"admin","country_code":"US","bounding_box":
{"type":"Polygon","coordinates":[[[-179.231086,51.175092],
[179.859681,51.175092],[179.859681,71.441059],
[-179.231086,71.441059]]]},"full_name":"Alaska,
US","name":"Alaska","id":"07179f4fe0500a32","country":"The United
States of America","url":"http://api.twitter.com/1/geo/id/
07179f4fe0500a32.json"}

The coordinates in the tweet are still correct, though:

"coordinates":{"type":"Point","coordinates":[-1.9,52.41]}

Unfortunately, the website seems to use the wrong place instead of the
correct coordinates.
