Bug: Change in spelling of GCS_Deutshe_Hauptdreiecksnetz (DHDN) caused inability to perform data transformations on older data using the Projection Engine.

Description

** This issue is addressed in ArcSDE 9.0 Service Pack 2 (SP2) **

The name of the DHDN coordinate system was taken from EPSG (European Petroleum Survey Group). Originally, this was spelled as GCS_Deutsche_Hauptdreiecksnetz. At a later release, EPSG fixed the spelling to GCS_Deutsches_Hauptdreiecksnetz. German clients have problems with this spelling change, because when attempting to do a datum transformation on data with the old coordsys name, the transformation searches for the new name, not the old, so no match is found.
