 Replying to [ticket:1889 hamish]:
 > Hi,
 > a change a while back changed things so that after you complete setting
 up a new location, and after it asks you if you want to set the default
 bounds, it automatically launches in the PERMANENT mapset.

 it doesn't anymore now.

 > Day to day use of PERMANENT as your working mapset is not good practice
 and the auto-launch behaviour should be reverted. Instead it should act
 like the text location creation tool and ask you if you want to create a
 new mapset, auto-filling in the $user name as a suggestion for what to
 call it.

 it does now.

 > Perhaps this came in with the code to automatically import the
 georeferenced map you created a new location from? (and that one should
 ask you first, e.g. the geofile may be massive and you don't want to
 import it)

 it asks for importing the georeferenced map.

 closing the ticket?
