I was seeing a somewhat similar effect with the latest nitf.py and
a week old FWTools build but when I refreshed from the latest
GDAL source the problem went away leading me to suspect that the
test is for a recent fix put in by Even.  Are you confident you are
running the test with the latest source?  Perhaps there was a short overlap?
