I see.

A question: are just the metadata incomplete in the file I created
or is also the reprojection incorrect? Say, can I happily assign -a_srs
the correct projection definition or should I moreover reproject
again using trunk?


PS: Some/all CGIAR SRTM Geotiffs have been updated on the server
      some months ago (I downloaded V4 before that) and now they
      contain the projection info.
