bah! r.in.bin just has lots of "return 1;" whenever an error
occurs, not a G_fatal_error message. Give me a few minutes and
I'll upload a new version to SVN with something more telling.

typing "echo $?" after the module returns to the prompt will
give you the exit code of the last thing run. I suspect for
you it will be "1".  (0 means EXIT_SUCCESS)
