With ASP2.2, rpc_mapproject seems to try to write xml files in an unwritable location, and spews warning messages:

Warning: GdalIO: Unable to save auxilary information in /vsisubfile/3989_961434577,WV01_11DEC131600110-P1BS_R1C1-10200100150C8F00.ntf.aux.xml. (code = 1)

I've seen this problem on an RHEL6 linux box and on a mac running OSx 10.8

This is a GDAL bug. GDAL takes a filename, and prepends to it metainfo, getting as above,


GDAL has a function to parse this thing and extract the proper filename, but it forgot to call it.

From a software perspective, the above is a huge hack, one should use a proper data structure to store info, rather than prepending it to a filename. I filed a bug:

How can I reproduce this bug? R from GDAL is also claiming he can't reproduce this.

Sorry for the delay. Here's how to reproduce it on pfe. (I am sure it is a GDAL error, one just need to find a good way of reproducing it using the GDAL library only without our stuff).

I re-opened this issue in the GDAL bug tracker. I can reproduce this only with gdal_translate.


oleg-alexandrov commented Dec 23, 2015

This is something we can easily fix ourselves with a patch to GDAL. Should be a one-line change.

The reason this should be fix is because for large runs it can create hundreds of MB of log files.

This fix should be mentioned in NEWS, I think users will appreciate it.

Looks to me like the wrong commit diff above.
