Hi Pablo,

how old is your GRASS version?

I observe that there is a mixture of \ and / mixed...  (also
grass-6.a.0svn is funny,
note the "a"?).

OSGeo4W-GRASS has been updated recently and should have all needed fixes
for the \ and / confusion. Perhaps it comes from the GRASS-GDAL plugin? I darkly
remember that it opens the ellipsoid table.
