GDAL fails to read AVHRR L1B GAC data prior to NOAA-15

I am trying to use GDAL to read AVHRR L1B GAC data. The GDAL driver for AVHRR supposedly supports NOAA-9 through NOAA-17, but it appears to fail reading AVHRR files prior to NOAA-15 from our archive. For these files GDAL (for example when using gdalinfo, but it's the same error message when reading the data in Python) returns
ERROR 4: `NSS.GHRR.NH.D94001.S2246.E0034.B2717475.GC' not recognised as a supported file format. gdalinfo failed - unable to open 'NSS.GHRR.NH.D94001.S2246.E0034.B2717475.GC'.
The same files that cause trouble with GDAL can be read in other packages such as CoastWatch? (http://coastwatch.glerl.noaa.gov/software/software.html) or N1BX (http://www.sat.dundee.ac.uk/programs/noaa1b/n1bx.c) without any problem, so the files should be in a standard format. Also, GDAL appears to work great with any files from NOAA-15 and later, so it doesn't seem to be an issue with my setup.
I will try to attach one of the problematic files to this ticket. I can also provide access to many more example files.
