Ticket #2303 (closed bug: fixed)
Displaying raster in a Location with undefined projection causes QGIS to crash

When working in a Location with no projection information (an "X-Y" Location), you can display vector maps, but trying to display a raster causes QGIS to crash. Same results in both Linux and windows.
Recreate the issue as follows: Using the "Create new Mapset" wizard create a new location with undefined CRS. Open a GRASS teminal and run r.mapcalc "test=1" (or equivalent in the GRASS Toolbox). Trying to add the test raster causes the crash. Vectors display properly.
The same Location, mapset, and raster will display properly in GRASS itself - outside of QGIS.
