Sure; as I stated it is just a work around, I guess I should have added
"until the real issue is resolved".

Hmm, I am not sure if I completely understand, however, if I run the
'd.rast' GUI, provide a bogus file name, click run, I get a tcltk
dialog titled 'd.rast output' that says:
ERROR: Raster map [fooMAR] not available
Quit Save Clear
So, it seems to be capturing the errors as it should, and otherwise
function normally, AFAICT.
Also if I choose Region->Display Region Settings, the settings properly
appear in a new xterm.
Can you provide me an example of a specific program to try and what to
expect in the shell?
