"Berlin/Schonefeld" (correct would be "Berlin/Schönefeld"),
Berlin-Tempelhof, Berlin-West (not so relevant since 1989),
"Schoneiche/Berlin" (correct would be "Schöneiche/Berlin"),
Birkenwerder bei Berlin, Bernau bei Berlin, and Marienfelde are
all in or near Berlin, Germany.

I thought I did, but now I tried again: If I select "Berlin, The
Gambia", the tooltip says "Berlin, Germany", so it results
unexpectedly right. There is another option "Berlin," (nothing
after the comma, which I assumed meant the by far largest
Berlin, Germany), which results in Berlin, South Africa. 

Btw., it seems the weather plugins search mechanism is confusing
more things, e.g. when I enter a Berlin "zip code" (postal code,
Postleitzahl), such as 10111, only "New York, NY (10111)" is
returned. When I enter "Berlin", there is a list of eight
Berlins with two letters behind, which I interprete as ISO
country codes: "Berlin, GA" in Gabon, "Berlin, MA" in Morocco,
"Berlin, MD" in the republic of Moldova etc. However, it seems,
that those Berlins do not exist at all.
