Update to June GeoIP database

See branch geoip-june2012 in my public repository.

I manually removed range to which Maxmind says is assigned to AT. This is very likely a bug in their database, because is a reserved range. I sent an update request to Maxmind, but didn't hear back from them. I stated in the commit message that I manually removed that line from our geoip file.

I based this branch on maint-0.2.2. Is this still the right thing to do, or should I base future branches on master or something else?

I think putting it in maint-0.2.2 is still appropriate for now. The main risk is that the monthly geoip update introduces a mistake that actually affects users (like placing Noisebridge in Syria).
