Polish Geoportal WMS problem

When I'm opening WMS service http://sdi.geoportal.gov.pl/wms_topo/wmservice.aspx (Polish Geoportal raster map service) for example TOPO_50_92 the layer bounds are shifted north and east - I can not reach the southern and western parts of Poland. Metadata option in Overlay Control Center says:

WEST LONGITUDE=13° 46' 11.1641" E
NORTH LATITUDE=56° 57' 21.4102" N
EAST LONGITUDE=30° 20' 6.0208" E
SOUTH LATITUDE=49° 57' 29.5581" N

but this bounds are shifted.
Something is wrong...
This service http://sdi.geoportal.gov.pl/wms_orto/wmservice.aspx is working OK and it's from Polish geoportal too.

Best regards,
Wojtek from Poland

    I've seen this before with this source. If I remember correctly the lat/lon bounds of the data layers specified in the GetCapabilities document from the server are incorrect (the X and Y coordinates are swapped I believe). That needs fixed on the server end.
