Package: python-gdal
Version: 1.5.2-3
Severity: important

I have found out that on debian lenny ascii rasters with null values defined
as -9999 are not imported correctly.
I have asked on gdal-dev if this behavior is normal, and found out that this
bug is specific to debian lenny.
When I upgraded to the python-gdal version supplied with debian squeeze I
found out that behavior is stoped.
I provide here a link to the discussion I started in gdal-dev mailing list.
I think a patch should be supplied for people who don't to install packages
from squeeze at the moment.

Here is the link to the detailed discussion on gdal-dev:

           Imagine there's no countries
           It isn't hard to do
           Nothing to kill or die for
           And no religion too
           Imagine all the people
           Living life in peace
          You all must read 'The God Delusion'

when one person suffers from a delusion it is called insanity. When many
people suffer from a delusion it is called religion."
