For me, when using ogrinfo to look at TIGER data, all the lines with
geometry data returns a summary, followed by all the individual data

Is it possible your simply "missing" it as it all scroll by?

I usually pipe the output to 'more' so that it pauses after the first
screen, so I can pull the info I need (such as extents.)
