That is normal and harmless. Datum transformation parametes are normally
defined in terms of their relationship wih WGS84, so if your datum is
WGS84 itself then it doesn't matter if the parameters are specified or
not: towgs84=0,0,0 is the only possible parameter set.

That is of much more concern. Can you try running
on the file that has the problem, and posting the results to the list here
in the hope that someone can see what is wrong?
