Errors in 'US City Directories 1821-1989' on Ancestry

I did a search of the "US City Directories 1821-1989" on the name "Steinnagel" and one of the results was for my great uncle Eduard Steinnagel and is from the 1905 City Directory for Waterbury/Naugatuck, CT.

The problem however is that (1) he actually doesn't show up anywhere in the 1905 directory for Waterbury or Naugatuck and (2) he didn't arrive in the US until 1907 - 2 years after the 1905 directory.

Anyone know how prevalent this sort of issue is with searching the directories?
