[GRASS-dev] ascii export and import, large file problem

The regions were in fact different before and after the export/import. We
used the default decimal setting. We're trying 16 decimals to see if that
makes a difference.

My first guess is that the export->import process is changing the
vertical extent of the map slightly, so the calculation in the upper
portion of the map is using cells which are off by one row.

What does r.info say about the bounds of the two maps?
