Replying to timmie:

the other mapsets have to be activated:

g.mapsets - Modifies the user's current mapset search path. Affects the user's access to data existing under the other mapsets in the current location.

Just found out this apparently applies to all layer selection dialogues (such as also the r.mapcalc one).

Oh. So what would prevent us to allow access to all mapset by default?

Some usability...

Not always: we have 100+ mapsets per location, several of them filled with 14,000+ maps each (think MODIS LST time series).

And what about adding a user preset for this?

Especially for users with many small projects it is always cumbersome to have many intermediate steps.

This is the user case of Single user working at on may small projects.
