This is due to the PATH setting.
If you start MSys via the msys.bat it will set PATH, but it will also
run in an rxvt Window, which is rather unreliable.
I suggest creating a batch file, e.g.:
Change the paths as appropriate for your system.
That will start a shell in a command window. From there, you will need
to start GRASS before you can use any GRASS commands.
