When trying to add a Feature Class from a v10 FileGDB (file geodatabase), QGIS Stops Working, freezes and can only be closed by terminating the QGIS process via hard killing (ie, Alt+F4 or Task Manager).

I can add an empty Feature Class, but when I go to close QGIS and Discard the changes, it freezes and process has to be killed.
Adding a FC with a feature crashes immediately.

I noticed in the window where I select the Feature Class to load, it says Unknown WKB. If I Cancel this window without even adding a layer, QGIS crashes.

Probably not an original qgis problem.

filegdb is only available for GDAL 1.9.0 and probably needs a rebuild for 1.9.2 in OSGeo4W. See also OSGeo4W #309
