This is http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/ticket/4329

In short, the WFS/GML drivers can deal with geographic SRS that have 
latitude/longitude ordering and do the coordinate swapping, but not yet for 
projected SRS that have northing/easting ordering.

The return of the driver is somehow correct.  It reports a SRS in 
northing/easting ordering and presents coordinates in that order. But I agree 
it would be nicer for it to behave like geographic SRS with inverted axis 

Another way of working around that is to force VERSION=1.0.0, since GeoServer 
only honours EPSG axis order from WFS 1.1.0. Remembers me
