Hi Even,

Thank you for trying to help. Unfortunately, the --overwrite option does 
not help.

I have a very small test file at http://webgis.uster.ch/temp/test.tif

I used the following options:

gdal_calc.py -A test.tif --overwrite --outfile=testcalc.tif 

All pixels with values of "255" are now "nodata" after running gdal_calc 

May I please ask you to test/verify this?

Thanks a lot!
