Hi Glynn,

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:

                          d.rast output
   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?
