Could be a Smudge.

Please note that it may have already been fixed, the City Layer is currently having issues removing names that have been removed from the map.

They are aware of the issue, and are working on it.

Is there any ETA on when this might be resolved? I.e. is it even remotely high on the Waze code monkey list?

So... to answer more concisely: "No, there's no ETA. And there's no telling how important it is to them."

Awesome. To paraphrase someone else -- sure glad to see they're focusing on ridiculous things like improving the interaction with Facebook and other social media while the map itself is being left to stagnate...

As a product with both utilitarian and social dimensions, Waze appeals to different people for different reasons, so I think it's fair to say they have to work on multiple fronts.

My map almost always displays the label "Beech Hill" which floats around over everywhere I go. Beech Hill is a tiny community of a few dozen people, a hundred kilometers from where I am.

Also today, another incorrect label, "Brookside" appeared over a body of water. Below is a screen dump:
