It appears to be a bug with something not correctly handling qualified

Rast_put_reclass() is a likely candidate:

    sprintf(buf2, "%s@%s\n", name, G_mapset());

This should be e.g.:

	xname = G_fully_qualified_name(name, G_mapset());

which will only add the mapset if the name is unqualified.

Also, the "misc: couldn't be removed" is probably because
G_is_reclassed_to() doesn't close the cell_misc/<name>/reclassed_to
file. On Windows, you cannot delete a file if it's open.

Can someone check r45681 and back-port?
