Set the Admin prefs to: BASIC Options for autocomplete on places; NO “Use GeoNames database for autocomplete on places”. (I use their site directly)
Typed “Toro” and saw list of places that looked good. Then spotted “Toronto, , Maryland”. No idea if it exists but went to Admin > Update all the place names…”. Entered it in Search for. Entered it again in Replace with (to make correction) and drop down showed all kinds of strange Toronto entries in parts of USA and around the world.
Interestingly, tried Preview and was told No places found.

Not quite. List of “Toro” includes El Toro Memorial Park Cemetery, Orange County, California, USA. Or is it because El is ignored?
