HERE Places API: incorrect data in response

We’ve found a problem with a response we get using a /places/v1/autosuggest request with the Places API. Request: https://places.cit.api.here.com/places/v1/autosuggest?app_code=AJKnXv84fjrb0KIHawS0Tg&app_id=DemoAppId01082013GAL&at=52.379189%2C4.899431&cs=places&q=Empire+S&result_types=place

We search for the Empire State Building in New York (landmark-attraction) and get this response, please check: http://places.demo.api.here.com/places/v1/autosuggest?at=52.379189%2C4.899431&q=Empire+State+Building&result_types=place&cs=places&Accept-Language=en-US%2Cen%3Bq%3D0.5&app_id=DemoAppId01082013GAL&app_code=AJKnXv84fjrb0KIHawS0Tg#

You’ll see the title and vicinity are correct, but if you look at the “href" and “id" you can see these aren’t, as those are for a restaurant named "State Grill and Bar":

href: http://places.demo.api.here.com/places/v1/places/840dr5ru-f494d331f0204d89bef762a8fdc04049;context=Zmxvdy1pZD00ZDkxN2QwNC03ODYwLTUzNGUtOTE4ZS04MjFlZTBmMmUxNjFfMTU1MjM0MzYyMDE3M18zODcyXzIxNjAmcmFuaz0wJmNzPXBsYWNlcw?app_id=DemoAppId01082013GAL&app_code=AJKnXv84fjrb0KIHawS0Tg

id: 840dr5ru-f494d331f0204d89bef762a8fdc04049

Does anyone know why we get the wrong href and id for the place, is this something on HERE's end?
