[Gdal-dev] Projection import from ArcInfo grid (adf)

I'm using GDALOpen() to read an ArcInfo binary grid file (a directory of
.adf files).  The projection is presumably specified in the file "prj.adf",
which contains the following:

Projection    LAMBERT
Zunits        NO
Units         METERS
Spheroid      CLARKE1866
Xshift        0.0000000000
Yshift        0.0000000000
 9 56  0.000 /* 1st standard parallel
 11  0  0.000 /* 2nd standard parallel
-84 20  0.000 /* central meridian
 10 28  0.000 /* latitude of projection's origin
500000.00000 /* false easting (meters)
271820.52200 /* false northing (meters)

The dataset opens successfully and allows me to read the grid values, but
when i call GetProjectionRef(), it gives me the following string:


This seems quite wrong; it's picking up the Lambert but missing the rest of
the projection description.

This is with GDAL 1.1.8 (not from CVS).  Am i doing something wrong or is
this an issue with GDAL?
