I'm afraid you can do nothing (apart complaining at the producer). The content 
of the file is just not consistant with its declared CRS. There's often 
confusion when EPSG declares a CRS as being Northing-Easting or Latitude-
Longitude, but when EPSG declares it as Easting-Northing, there's no reason 
why you would put the coordinates in a different order !!!

Hum, GDAL (as reported by "gdalsrsinfo EPSG:25835") sees both as Easting-
Northing ordered. What is your reference for EPSG:25835 being ordered as 
Northing-Easting ?
