There were 2 meaningful changes mades in the OGR OGDI driver during GDAL 1.7 
development (http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/changeset/18499 and 

Could you try downloading and unzipping

then try :

ogrinfo -ro gltp:/vrf/path/to/ogdits-3.1/data/vpf/vm2alv2/texash

This is supposed to work (tested in GDAL autotest suite)

If it doesn't, then I'd suppose it is an issue with the OGDI library in the 
It it works with that dataset, then perhaps this is due to one of the above 
changes in the driver that wouldn't work with DNC datasets, but I'm very 
skeptical as the changes only affect the layer object whereas your error 
would tend to think that the driver doesn't even go to the point of creating 
any layer.

Best regards,
