ogr2ogr Mapinfo export not working

Crashes QGIS or corrupts data: Copied to github as #:12456


QGIS trunk
Kubuntu 9.10 AMD64
GDAL 1.8dev

When I choose a ESRI Shapefile and supply an input filename name then choose target format of "MapInfo File" and press Browse nothing happens at all. If you then just press OK it tells you that the target dataset is missing. I had a look at the code and it looks to me like the line

add( Format( "MapInfo", "MapInfo File", Format::eFile ) );

in format.cpp has the "MapInfo" and "MapInfo File" around the wrong way. If you reverse these and re-compile, QGIS then allows you to choose the output target file, but then crashes when you press OK. Looking in the target directory, OGR Converter writes out the dat, id and map files, but there is no tab file. If you just enter a name (ie. without '.tab') as the target filename, it creates a directory and writes the dat, id and map files, again without the tab.

My GDAL appears to be working as I can do the conversion using ogr2ogr.
