comment How to re-project shapefiles?
I tried different projections and they all output very different values for coordinates. I'll ask at gdal mailing list, and post results if I get answer. Thanks for your time

With EPSG:900913 instead EPSG:4326 I get "PROJCS["Google_Maps_Global_Mercator"... but coordinates are totally off :Extent: (-3785362.530285, 25.607240) - (-3785362.528919, 25.608223)

But it's not projected. PROJCS dictionary is not present in metadata and coordinates are wrong. See the coordinates (Extent) in source file and then in file output by ogr2ogr.

But it just changes coordinate system without re-projecting. That's why I asked this question. Please see the code box in my question more closely

@steko: If "on the fly" is what is answered by djq, yes I already knew that.

Yes that's great, but I would have to do that for every layer, which is time consuming. By using command line I was hoping to re-project all shapefiles at once (with for loop)

I updated question with log. In the meantime I also tried the same with grass-dev version (7.0) and got same result. Shapefile seems valid, I created it with OGR and then did some changes in qgis after which I saved it. Any tool I have for reading SHP files renders it fine.
