georeferencer fails with Critical error

I am trying to georeference a scanned map in TIFF format with linear method, but the Georeferencer plugin fails to generate the .wld file, giving the following error (I ran qgis from the command line):
Critical: [[QgsCoordinateReferenceSystem]]::createFromWkt -- theWkt is uninitialised, operation failed
This happens both in an empty project (no reprojection defined) and an existing one (with some layers and a custom CRS).

yes, it is still true (the message about theWkt still shows in the terminal), even though I can't test it now with real-world data. Since the first bug report I switched happily to helmert and polynomial methods with good results, but I think the default method should work.
Also, apparently there's no way to know that georectification has failed if not using a terminal, which is somehow rare I'm afraid.

- Resolution set to fixed
- Status changed from Feedback to Closed
as I said before right now I've no real-world data to test with. Honestly, I can't remember the exact problem I had 4 months ago (I was finishing my MA dissertation!), so if you see the very same messages as I do and it works, feel free to close this bug.
