Your code looks ok to me.  It might help to have a gdalinfo report on the
input file to see if it has GCPs.

But if I where you, I'd examine the psInfo structure very carefully in
the debugger to see if there is anything peculiar about it.

If you have no luck, feel free to boil this down to a minimal program,
and submit a bug report with the input file or a small variation that
demonstrates the problem.

By the way, the GIF format is a "CreateCopy" format so you won't be
able to do a warp directly to a gif file.  You will need to do it
to an intermediate file in a randomly writable format, and then
use CreateCopy() from that to produce the GIF file.  The intermediate
file could be in memory (using MEM format driver) if you know you
aren't working with particularly large images.  However, assuming your
report of where the problem is manifesting is correct, I can't see
that this has anything to do with your current problem.
