Google's Phantom U-Bahnhof

Google's map service is technically very well implemented, but the geographical information it contains should be treated with caution. Not only will it happily direct you to the wrong address for major tourist attractions, it also seems to be using a different map of Berlin's U-Bahn system to everyone else, as demonstrated by the apparent existence of an U-Bahn station at Berlin-Ostbahnhof:
