[gdal-dev] nodata in .bil format

While playing a bit with Lastools I came across this behavior. I create 
outputs in both .bil and .asc ESRI formats
The weird thing is that beeing the .hdr header file common (I mean 
exactly equal) to both outputs the  .bil format does not recognize the 
nodata value.
Is this a knwon issue?    (GDAL trunk on Windows)

gdalinfo lixo.bil
