Does this patch help:
FWIW, I can start GRASS with the MSys installation directory renamed
to "c:\m sys" (this is using cmd.exe, not MSys/rxvt).
Scripts don't work; I suspect that the _spawnlp() in g.parser may
require quoting (or switching to G_spawn(), or supporting something
like the -s switch).
BTW, regarding gui/tcltk/gis.m/gis.m.bat:
@start "%GRASS_WISH%" "%GISBASE%/etc/gm/gm.tcl
1. the final double-quote is missing.
2. "start" seems to treat a quoted first argument as the title, so
this may need to be e.g.
@start "gis.m" "%GRASS_WISH%" "%GISBASE%/etc/gm/gm.tcl"
