Maybe my answer was not clear. I was talking about the (rare?) case
that someone hits CTRL-C while generating a new location interactively.
The old behaviour was to leave the coordinate-definition screen and
just enter GRASS (with totally useless PROJ_* files and DEFAULT_WIND
files). As the user (like me) hit CTRL-C, he may want to break the procedure
and leave GRASS.
Now, the create-location procedure is really interrupted if someone hits

Hope this explains the idea of the minimal change.

I tried to find a difference when projecting to WGS84 and sphere, there
was none. Maybe I made a mistake, but I didn't try your latest changes
on this problem.
