That is right. HDF file is just container for several different images,
so it is pointless to report size or projection info for the main HDF

That is fixed now in CVS. Your dataset does not contain "HDFEOSVersion"
metadata record, which is used by GDAL to deduce whether we have HDF-EOS
or just plain HDF file. I added more logic to guess HDF-EOS variants.
