If I start a fresh QGIS session, and load a single raster or vector layer with a projected coordinate system, the project coordinate system does not seem to be set to match (based on the project properties dialog). Among other things this results in ridiculous scale values being reported for the layer.

I will attach a simple transverse mercator mapinfo file that demonstrates the problem though it first struck me with rasters.

I believe this is the same as bug #946. I recall that there have been some posts about this on the forums or mailing lists, but I can't locate them now.

There appears to be a lot of expectation that the first layer loaded sets the projection as stated in the User Guide, sec 7.2 - Getting Started in Working with Projections.

I have learned to set the desired projection when starting a project.
