Tahts what happens to me. But if you reprocess the data the point will be
shown. Even the UTF correction is = 0.
Strange behaviour.

Ok.

When I do the export, among others I find these three points:
"home via web",-260499990,282166690,0,0,4,6567,1205003759
"hellrazor clubhouse",-261343590,281627100,0,0,0,6567,1205057688
"home",-260521400,282187316,1,3,0,6567,1205066551

The last one (Home) is the one I added by using the # key from navigation
mode, whereas the hellrazor clubhouse is around 10km away, and is the one I
entered after finding it via that website, and the home via web is also one
I did, however, that's the one I can't see at all.

In other words, if I  now do a search for the two letter search term HO, I
find "home" and "hellrazor clubhouse", but it doesn't return the "home via
the web" one to me.
