[GRASS5] s.proj site header

it's right that s.proj puts a comment at the beginning of a projected file.
But s.info does not have any problems with that - such comments should
be ignored.

Is it possible that you are using an outdated GRASS version? Also
your other (personal) mail concerning the Timestamp struct indicates

So far comments should be accepted (I just tried s.proj, s.info).

Just to know: How did you generate the sites header with "timestamp|"
instead of "time|"? In case the file was generated by a module, we
have to fix it (which one?).

Best regards
