Geonames admin records have invalid WOF ids #539

Here's a bug report from a user:

Hey, guys! I think I found a bug in Mapzen search... Looks like it's
returning invalid WOF IDs when the source isn't Who's on First. Check
it out:,%20OR&sources=geonames&size=1

In that case, it returns a Geonames record with a WOF ID of
whosonfirst:locality:5730183, which doesn't exist. (It's the same as
the geonames ID: geonames:locality:5730183)

The correct WOF ID is whosonfirst:locality:101715871... If you switch
to only return whosonfirst records, you get the right lcoality ID:,%20OR&sources=wof&size=1

Hope that's helpful!

This is a dupe of pelias/geonames#107, right?
