Comment (by pkelly):

 Hello Michael,
 Please can you give an example of a file that causes this problem (put it
 online somewhere and post a link?) and I will investigate it. As far as I
 know any errors in parsing the projection information are reported. The
 only thing I can think of is that the file doesn't actually contain
 projection information - it's not an error to carry on creating a location
 from this though, as some information from the file (i.e. the extents and
 resolution) can still be used in creating the location.

 AND... as far as I can see g.proj already outputs a warning when an
 unprojected file is being used. Something like:
 Read of file ./roads.shp was successful, but it did not contain
 projection information. 'XY (unprojected)' will be used

 An additional warning could I suppose be added if a location is being
 created, specifically reminding the user of the need to run g.setproj or
 g.proj at a later date, if we think that's necessary. But I really need to
 see an example of the file that causes this problem as I can't see where
 it would be happening.
