The QGIS browser fails reading maps from GRASS read-only mapsets. The browser is trying to create in mapset directory for temporary data. Is it really needed? This feature is very limiting since you can browse (display) only data from mapsets where you have write permission.

Unable to make mapset element .tmp/c50

Which data type, raster or vector? Local or mounted drive? Unix or Windows?

I cannot reproduce it. I can read rasters/vectors from a mapset which has all dirs and files read only.

The error is result of call to G_make_mapset_element_tmp() but the provider does not call that function and I am not aware that it would be creating temporary files.

Could it be that GRASS lib is trying to create a tmp file under certain circumstances?

Can you please help to narrow down where it comes from?
