Thank you for the very good explanation of what is going on. I imagined 
something like that. For my part this is not much of a problem, as I 
normally don't need so precise region settings, but I do understand that 
it can be frustrating for someone like Maciej who does.

The question really is: can we develop a way (probably not in gis.m, but 
maybe in the future wxpython GUI) to accurately set the region in a 
graphical, interactive UI ?
