Note that the value from Shanks is not a typo: rather it is the
exact latitude and longitude that is found in but in decimal format, rather than
minutes-seconds etc.

Thanks for the corrections.  The wrong data came from Shanks.  The CIA
nearly agrees with you, except they give +4226+01916 for Podgorica.
<> gives +422812+0191648, but that
doesn't seem quite right either.  I think I'll go with the CIA in my next
proposed patch.
