AFAIK, r.in.arc was written for Arc/Info ASCII grids as exported via
gridascii.  The reported behavior doesn't sound right as the program 
reads the header of the input file, sets the region using this info, 
and then opens the output raster.  Perhaps the header entries are bogus? 

Recognized labels: ncols, nrows, xllcorner, yllcorner, cellsize, 
nodata_value (case doesn't matter).

Are you sure the imported raster actually encompasses the whole region?
