congrats, you found a bug.
gis.m fails with the error you posted if you start it from an XY location.
Error in startup script: can't read "prj(name)": no such variable
"string eq "Lat/Lon" "$prj(name)""
(procedure "MapCanvas::get_mapunits" line 30)
invoked from within
that error now fixed in SVN r37257. (it was only in 6.5svn)
but r36386 doesn't solve all problems for Lat/Lon locations, so still
highly broken for them in gis.m :( (both constrained and unconstrained
