#3391 closed defect (fixed)

MapInfo driver doesn't create a layer defn at layer creation.

This is related to #3384. When creating a new layer to a MapInfo datasource, the layer defn is NULL before any field definition has been added with CreateField(). This is a rather unusual behaviour for a OGR driver and caused ogr2ogr to crash. It would be desirable, if possible, that an empty layer defn is instanciated at layer creation.

mitab_miffile.cpp belongs to the MITAB project. From a quick look, I think that upstream CVS MITAB hasn't incorporated the change you made in r19447 (the file is in version 1.52 in MITAB CVS whereas GDAL is still using 1.49). The normal proceedure is to upstream the change and then refresh GDAL from the CVS. You should see with Daniel so that he can incorporate your change.
