Bug Description

Binary package hint: indicator-datetime

indicator-datetime 0.1.98-0ubuntu1, Ubuntu Natty

0. Make sure you aren't connected to the Internet
1. From the clock menu, choose "Time & Date Settings..."
2. Click "Unlock to change these settings".
3. In the "Location" field, enter "london".

What happens: A hundred or so options appear, none of which are "London" or even have the string "London" in them.

What should happen: London UK, London Ontario, and any other places called London appear.

So I can only see this bug when I'm not connected to the Internet (and I added that to the reproduction steps above). If you are sure you saw this when connected, perhaps there are two bugs here. But working on the non-connected bug, obviously, you wouldn't expect lots of London results. We'll match the tiny database we ship with, but it may not have London (I think it doesn't, in fact).

Nope, London is in the default database. Yay! branch filed
