 similar problems in the Tcl/Tk GUI. From the startup screen:

 Define new locations with ... [EPSG codes]

 Path to the EPSG-codes file: /c/OSGeo4W/share/proj/epsg
 EPSG code number of projection __________ [Browse]

 if you click "browse EPSG codes", you get an error that the file can't be
 found. If you browse for the EPSG file, the path becomes
 `C:/OSGeo4W/share/proj/epsg` and then it all works: ie the nice code table
 browsing, searching, & grabbing.
