a similar problem we also face (on Linux, so it's a bug in the i.ortho.photo

Some things to check:
- do you have a DEM which covers the area of the target orthophoto,
  all at the same resolution?
- what's the elevation difference in that area
  (r.univar tells you min and max etc)

We have the impression, that the algorithm is somewhat unstable in regions
with a large elevation range.
