QGIS 1.4, Vista 32-bit.

Please see here for the background to this problem:


OGR layer converter - when used to convert an ESPG:27700 shapefile to KML errors of about 120 metres occur. The error is consistent with the layer converter not recognising the '+datum=OSGB36' parameter in the parameter string.

In the attached zip: (1) 'Home.kml' a KML file for a line traced in Google Earth. (2) 'Home.shp', the result of loading the KML file into QGIS and saving it as a projected shape file. (3) 'homeconverted.kml', the result of using the layer converter to reconvert the the shape file to KML.

I know that the shape file (2) is correct.

Trying to make a GPX file from the shape file using the layer converter does not work.
