           Summary: Altitude in "Current Location" is shown as 0
           Product: marble
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: marble-bugs at kde.org
        ReportedBy: lew at tzi.de

Version:           Revision 1005421 from SVN trunk (using KDE 4.2.2)
Compiler:          gcc 4.3.3 
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages

When I open the "Current Location" tab and click on "Navigation mode",
longitude and latitude are shown correctly but altitude is 0.

Gpsd is running and offers another value than 0 for altitude to its clients,
which I can see with xgps. Longitude and latitude are the same in xgps and

Marble is compiled with libgps 2.38 (official ubuntu package). 

Marble was started with LANG=C.

I fiddled a bit with the source and found out that GpsdPositionProviderPlugin
puts the right value in its GeoDataCoordinates m_position. But in the end the
MarbleControlBox gets something different with altitude == 0 ....
