I’m trying to perform a viewbox bounded search for bus stations. When searching for “bus stop” I get zero hits although http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nominatim#Special_Keywords seems to indicate this is what I should be searching for. The funny thing is that searching for the german synonym “bushalte” gives me the hits I’m looking for.

I’ve tried to use the MapQuest server too, it has the same symptom of accepting the german word but not the english, but it’s significantly faster for this query. Example:
Any help or advice would be appreciated!
