Hello Frank,
We are trying to read a US state Plane, NAD 1927, US Survey Feet projection 
from a TIFF file. The projection is valid and can be successfully read using 
other tiff readers. When we are trying to retreive the information using 
pDataset->GetProjectionRef() call, the following string is returned:

["Clarke 1866",6378206.4,294.9786982139006,AUTHORITY["EPSG","7008"]],AUTHORITY

which does not have sufficient parameters to correctly describe the coordinate 
The example file can be downloaded from:
Thanks in advance!
