I can't help you :( I can only confirm what you are saying:
On Linux (Gentoo) - identify:
identify "radar-20081222T090636-00.bmp" (9575)
radar-20081222T090636-00.bmp BMP 1024x1280 1024x1280+0+0 8-bit
In gqview and cinepaint the image looks normal, so it is when imported
in Inkscape too.
In Gimp both 2.4 and 2.6.0 the image looks like you are describing -
