Who's issue is it? Who is building the gdal binaries?
It seams also not to be a gdal issue
qgis for windows is built upon the packages from osgeo4w
then it uses the gdal package in there.
After installing QGIS open the osgeo4w shell, there you can run any gdal command (the same gdal copy qgis uses).
If the operation fails from that shell then it will also fail on qgis, but the bug has to be reported to the osgeo4w tracker.

maybe not a qgis issue but affects current QGIS 2.18.21 and QGIS 3.2.0 running in Win10 (1803) using GDAL 2.2.4 from OSGEO4W build. Therefore QGIS installers for Windows should be updated once a fix is available in OSGEO4W.
fix available in OSGeo4W build of GDAL 2.2.4-2 via OSGeo4W installer
hopefully it will be in next QGIS release, too, please ;-)
