[FWTools] ogrinfo warns about 'Multi-column primary key' but there is none

I have a PostgreSQL table which goes like shon below.
When I'm querying the my db 'gisdb' with ogrinfo it issues a warning:

ogrinfo -ro PG:"dbname=gisdb"
Warning 1: Multi-column primary key in 'towns' detected but not supported.
INFO: Open of `PG:dbname=gisdb'
      using driver `PostgreSQL' successful.
1: towns (Multi Polygon)

So the orginfo pretends that there is a "Multi-column primary key" but there
is no primary key.

Someone any explanation on this?
