 Hi All,

 I've using the OSGeo4W install of GDAL for a little while now and I just
 realized that GDAL utilities does not work when using PROJ.4 string to
 specify -s_srs or -t_srs.
 I usually defines my srs with EPSG codes and this does not give me any
 trouble. But I recently needed to use a custom projection and found out
 about the issue.
 I am running it with Windows 7 and I ran the commands in an OSGEO4w
 terminal window. The variables OSGEO4W_ROOT, PROJ_LIB and GDAL_DATA are
 pointing to the correct directories.

 If I enter the following command:

 ''gdalwarp -t_srs '+proj=utm +zone=11 +datum=WGS84' input.tif

 I get the following message:

 ''ERROR 1: Translating source or target SRS failed:
 '+proj=utm' ''

 Any idea on how to solve this?
