I have changed that now to $BINDIR/$GRASSPRG (= $BINDIR/grass57).

Yes, new feature:

I know that it is more work now, I was used to do the same. Maybe
it is just question of a habit because now it is possible to start more
sessions at the same time. Anyway, I think that the possibility 
to run (without tricks) more sessions (e.g. scripts in one mapset
and interactive work in another) is more important than 
this inconvenience. 
We can maybe find a way how to reopen monitors when grass is started in X?
