  1. Add a raster map (raster or vector).

Execution failed: 'd.rast map=N51E016@PERMANENT --q'

 ERROR: region for current mapset line 1run "g.region"
  1. Try to "Zoom to selected map" or any other zoom operation - a crash:

Michael Barton commented on GRASS dev ML:

Arrgh. Fixed this in TclTk but seems like we need to fix it in wxPython too. Thanks for spotting it. With new graphic tools in wxpython, Glynn's rewrite of the display drivers, and Martin's work on nD visualization we may be reworking the display rendering engine. At the moment, I'm not sure how much will be back ported to wxpython. We might try a simple patch on this for the moment, however. I'll try to look into it.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

I just tested this on current 6.4 svn. I zoomed until I got an error similar to the one above, with the added explanation that the zoomed region was smaller than the region resolution. In fact it was a LOT smaller than the region resolution by the time I hit this error.

But the error simply raised an error message and did not cause a crash. I zoomed to selected map and it worked fine.

I think this has been fixed in the year since this was last reported. If this causes a crash on someone else's system, we can reopen it.
