Here's an obscure (and extremely serious) issue I've been able to narrow down (gdb + breakpoint + 3 hours).

The long story short here is that loading a project containing a layer with "feature count" activated leads to a chain reaction that ends up triggering the QgsLayerTreeMapCanvasBridge::setCanvasLayers() function during project load, which under a number of circumstances will call QgsProject::instance()->setCrs( layerNode->layer()->crs() ).

I'm not an expert in the inner workings of Qt, but what seems to be happening here is that the QgsVectorLayer::countSymbolFeatures() function (called during the project load via QgsLayerTreeModel::addLegendToLayer) calls QCoreApplication::processEvents(), which I think ends up emmiting a bunch of signals before due time. If I disable the QCoreApplication::processEvents() line, project load is fine and the project CRS value isn't changed by a undue setCanvasLayers() call.

Steps to reproduce
  1. Open QGIS, and load the test2.qgs project file (attahced to this bug)
  2. Open the Python console, and type the following: QgsProject.instance().crs().authid()
  3. It'll properly return EPSG:3148
  4. Right click on the khm_admbnda_adm3_gov_reg vector layer, and check the "Show feature count" menu item
  5. Save the project, leave QGIS
  6. Re-open QGIS, and load the test2.qgs project file you've just saved
  7. Open the Python console, and type the following: QgsProject.instance().crs().authid()
  8. It'll wrongly return EPSG:4326

To help debug this, I've added a breakpoint within the setCanvasLayers() function where the project CRS is changed. It revealed the link between countSymbolFeatures() and the bogus setCrs() call which wrongly changes the project CRS while the project is being loaded.

The gdb "where" at the breakpoint:

Fix incorrect project CRS when loading project (fix #16149)

This commit fixes a situation where loading a project results
in incorrect project & canvas CRS. The bug is trigerred whenever
something in the project load calls a processEvents() call, eg
restoring a project with layer count enabled on a layer
or with a composer html item.

When this occurs, the "auto-set CRS to first added layer" code
would kick in early and replace the project's CRS with that
of the first layer loaded.

To avoid this disable the "auto-set CRS" code when loading
layers from a project.
