Ideally this should return the string returned by google as to WHY it failed, but the following is far better than silence.

@tobiasb:
When setting issues to RTBC it is good to give some sort of comment like that you have tested it (and how you tested it if it is not obvious) and it works or something. Especially if no one else has commented anything along those lines.
Also, when adding a new patch you should say why. How it is different from the patches before.

I have committed a slightly modified version of the patch to all versions.
Changes I made were:
* Removed t() from the watchdog() calls as watchdog handles that itself (except for in drupal 5).
* Changed the accuracy message to make it more useful.
* Added the changes to location_geocode_au_google() in location.au.inc also. Geocoding functionalities can be overridden per country in these include files. In this case the only country that has code relevant to this patch was Australia.
