Tried to georeference a jpeg image to EPSG 32119 projection. The output jgw file looked like this:
The qgis - generated points file :
mapX mapY pixelX pixelY
551629.000000 119426.000000 1042.95 -1942.69

I converted the above y pixel coordinates from negative to positive and used the altered coordinates as gcp points in gdalwarp and got the following correct world file:
My simplistic assumption is that the qgis georeferencer is passing negative y coordinates for a jpeg file when they should be positive instead.

We had some issues where if proejction was turned on when you entered georeference tools, it wouldn't work. have you tried turning off projection?
Also, if you have the possibility try downloading the latest from SVN and try it there. I have done some work with it.
If this does/does not work, let me know. There is nothnig bad with negative coordinates as I see it (0,0) is upper left pixel according to world file specification. What happens if you use gdalwarp with the negative coordinates?

I can go back and check, but I as I recall using negative line numbers with GCPs caused the image to flip upside down. ( I had tried it with a tiff version of the file as well)
the world file associated had the following contents:
With a negative y pixel size
I thought image specs in general had the 0,0 in the upper left hand corner and positive x going right and positive y going down?
