Description

When loading a GPX, by default tracks, routes, and waypoints are loaded, even if empty. For the user it mey be difficult to understand that a layer is present, with 0 geometries.
I suggest to avoid loading empty layers. A warning should be given to the user (either a notification "Layer not loaded because empty" or a note on the dialog "Note: empty layers will not be loaded").
Seems easy to implement.

Just to make clear, are you talking about GPS Tools plugin or about loading GPX files using OGR provider?
