Given a nonempty closed subset $A$ of a Banach space $X$ and a point $x \in X$,
we consider the problem of finding a nearest point to $x$ in $A$.
We define an appropriate complete metric space $\mathcal M$ of all pairs
$(A,x)$ and construct a subset $\Omega$ of $\mathcal M$ which is the countable
intersection of open everywhere dense sets such that for each
pair in $\Omega$ this problem is well-posed. As a matter of fact, we
show that the complement of $\Omega$ is not only of the first category,
but also sigma-porous.
