[gdal-dev] esri hdr format header

I looked all day for information regarding the following problem, but 
found none, so maybe the list can give me a hand:

When using GDAL C API reading and writing ESRI hdr files (floating point 
binaries), the output header is very different from the header of the 
input file (see examples below).
 From GDAL documentation ESRI files should be written using the first 
header example.  Am I missing some very obvious thing here? -Problem is 
that some GIS programs do not recognize the header in output from GDAL.
Thank you for you time!
