#1885: r.mapcalc command misses apices

 If we run r.mapcalc in graphic mode, then we copy the resulting command in
 the GRASS shell, it throws an error, eg:

   r.mapcalc raster_sum=((raster1+raster2))

   bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('

 If we add apices, it works:

   r.mapcalc raster_sum='((raster1+raster2))'

 same if we remove the parentheses:

   r.mapcalc raster_sum=raster1+raster2

 Looks an easy fix.
