this looks pretty much like a MapServer/Apache problem (not too much
GRASS related yet).

You may check if files are generated (in the tmp file of mapserver).
Be sure in the mapserver.map file, to have slashes here:

#temp data absolute path:
  IMAGEPATH /tmp/mapserver/
#temp data relative path:
  IMAGEURL "/tmp/"

at the end of the paths (yours may be different).

Good luck,
