By default GeoServer offers WMS with more than 3000 CRS options. When adding such WMS layer, QGIS correctly displays number of available CRS'es, still "Change..." list is empty.

Is there a public server instance available to test? It might be a problem with the crs format delivered by the server.

Problem still present [QGIS 1.2.0].


I haven't public wms, but you can test demo layers in standart GeoServer installation

This problem is not related to qgis. Doing some research about the problem I found that Geoserver offers an srs like this "<SRS>EPSG:WGS84</SRS>" as the first srs in its capabilities and is the one causing the problem. To fix it remove that srs from the geoserver epsg database.

You are right. Opened new bug #1881 "QGIS should ignore bogous CRS from WMS services"
