The geolocation regions in glow for slovenia are off.

The stats in http://www.maxmind.com/app/city_accuracy for MaxMind's geo location precision aren't all that useful for Slovenia, 25 miles is way off there.

Or they're reporting data for slovenia slightly other than for other regions, which could throw off the code.

To quote matjazz from .l10n.web:

Facebook also lists most of the cities in Slovenia under Brezovica, as if it
was a region. But it's actually a very small town with maybe 3000
inhabitants. ;)

Might be a common problem for folks using maxmind?
They are not consistent for other countries, such as Asia/Lebanon. Some of the regions are in French, while others in English. Besides, although it is listing almost all the regions (at least all main ones), about 40% of the downloads is mentioned under 'Other' region.

... and Bohinj is a great place to make holidays,

but the 24 villages and 2400 house numbers total 5227 people. 

The simplest would be to drop out this wrong/unnecessary level and sort all the towns under Slovenia.
Glow is dead.
