I discovered what was causing the problem, I just can't understand
why it would happen. Problem was that somehow (through poor error
checking on my part I suspect) I allowed a blank city name to be
stored in the file. For whatever reason, this caused the lookup to
function incorrectly. As soon as I deleted the blank city, all
worked fine.
