Trying to create a placename @ 3.19716, 19.74112 (Dem Rep of Congo), and getting a "duplicate" error from a nearby town.
The town I'm trying to place is Bobadjoko, the nearby town is Bobadjoko-Moke.
* duplicate record. A similar record to Bobadjoko already exists with 'Bobadjoko-Moke' and id =8235335 in 2.3522341699655867 km distance
There's a similar pairing just to the south of Bodumbili and Bodumbili-Moke, but they are further apart. I don't want to create it further out and then move it in later - that might make things worse.
I find it hard to believe that a partial name match would trigger a duplicate like this. Is it stumbling over the hyphen perhaps? I've seen that happen on sql database lookups - if the hyphen is not called out as an allowed character, the query may ignore the rest of the string after the hyphen. Shot in the dark.
Thanks in advance, anyway...
