Bug report #2601
qgis trunk does not associate the right crs to shapes

Tested on trunk in both windows (seven) and linux (ubuntu 9.10) and it seems that is only a windows issue.
Add a vector that has a coordinate system that is not in the qgis default list.
As usual the unknown crs is added to the custom crs list, but in the vector properties the vector is assigned the wgs84 crs.
If you try to manually define the crs ("specify crs") in the vector properties ("general" tab), then no string at all show in the appropriate space in the "general" tab.

You can test one of the shapes you can download here (should be code ESRI 102164), but is easily replicable with other non EPSG crs.
The problem is ONLY under windows, regardless the version, using qgis trunk installed with the osgeo4w installer.
I cannot see this under Ubuntu using qgis trunk self compiled, but all the other packages from the ububtugis repository.

This is no more a "only windows" issue. It is easy to replicate also under linux with the latest code revision.
Moreover there there are shapes that have a crs that is in the qgis internal db but it fails to read it completely like

- Status changed from Open to Closed
- Resolution set to fixed
probably fixed in 546b279c (SVN r13587). It was impossible to save any custom crs to a fresh user db. But these might well be two different issues as the bug description states that the crs was saved. So feel free to reopen.
