FWTools also includes the ogdi_info utility which will report various
information about an ogdi datasource.  Hopefully the commandline usage
messages is enough to figure out how to use it.  I would suggest testing
with that to see if it has the same issue.

If so, then file a bug against the OGDI library though to be honest I
have little interest in digging into the DTED driver since it is so easy
to access DTED files directly with GDAL.
