Apple argh

Oh joy oh joy. Apple has 'improved' iCal in a really /fun/ way, boys and girls.

Now, if you do something so inefficient as to put "Brasserie Z├ędel, 20 Sherwood Street, W1F 7ED: Piccadilly Circus tube" into the location field, it helpfully corrects it to "20 Sherwood Street, London, England, W1F, United Kingdom", because *obviously* I don't actually need to know the name of the restaurant, or the full post code, and certainly not the station, but knowing which country it is in will be very helpful to me as I sit on the tube without internet access wondering which stop I need.

Anyone know if I can turn it off? Or deliberately break it (quite happy to break all iCal autocompletes in the process)? Or will I just (experimentation shows) have to type these things in on my phone and then very carefully not click one the location field on my laptop?

(I would complain about the way that it's now impossible to have a screen open in Reminders that *both* shows everything due *and* lets you create a new reminder that defaults to actually having a date, but then I remember that I'm the only person in the universe who uses it and don't bother. Although, if I am the only person who uses it then you'd think they'd pay attention to how I use it, wouldn't you?)
