If I remember well, I had a "strange" issue with OGDI + GDAL : I got
"Floating point exception" when running mapserver with GDAL built
against the --with-ogdi= option.

I guess I should retry to build GDAL with OGDI support and see if it
works now. (I think I got this issue with GDAL 1.2.5)

True. One thing we could do is add a function that use an alternative
download site when the master fails, and it could be the FGS site. I
will add support for it, it's very easy.
