Hi guys,

I now get the same thing.  Which is weird, because it was working here 
before I switched to my new dual-processor machine and installed Grass 
from my CD.

Here are the errors that I get after running nviz -q

ERROR: window name "wait_ok" already exists in parent
child process exited abnormally
     while executing
"exec /usr/local/grass5/etc/nviz2.2/NVWISH2.2 -f 
/usr/local/grass5/etc/nviz2.2/scripts/nviz2.2_script -q -name NVIZ 
     ("eval" body line 1)
     invoked from within
"eval exec $env(GISBASE)/etc/nviz2.2/NVWISH2.2 -f 
$env(GISBASE)/etc/nviz2.2/scripts/nviz2.2_script $argv -name NVIZ 
     invoked from within
"if {$argv == ""} {
#no arguments

$env(GISBASE)/etc/nviz2.2/scripts/nviz2.2_script -name NVIZ >&@stdo..."
     (file "/usr/local/grass5/bin/nviz" line 13)

Tcltkgrass operates normally.

Any ideas?
