I tested a new GDAL FGS build (1.2.6) with OGDI (3.1.4) support and I
got no "Floating point exception" error. PROJ version is 4.4.8.

I uploaded this new build (fgs-gdal-base-1.2.6-linux-i386.tar.gz) on

To update a FGS runtime, run:

$ fgs install gdal-base:1.2.6 http://www.maptools.org/dl/fgs/modules


$ fgs force-install gdal-base:1.2.6

is you already have GDAL 1.2.6.
