Thanks. I got it working after a few tries. I ran into some issues trying to 
do what you suggested. (QGIS 0.7.4, Debian Sid AMD64)

The Settings>Preferences>Projection>Prompt for projection apparently is not 
working, since it does not prompt for projection when set. The new layer is 
created using the projection from the active GRASS location.

The Layer popup list>Properties>General>Spatial Reference System 
shows: "+proj=longlat +ellps=WGS84 +datum=WGS84 +no_defs " even after it has 
defaulted to something else as mentioned above. I created a new GPX layer, 
and checked the layer projection. Then it still produced UTM numbers in the 
GPX file, even with on-the-fly projection enabled.

When On-the-fly projection is enabled, the layer projection can be changed, 
and then it works as it should.
