In which case, GRASS_MESSAGE_FORMAT shouldn't be set to 'gui' when
performing redraw.

The setting should probably go into run_cmd in gui.tcl, so that
anything which is having its output processed by prnout uses the GUI
format, while everything else uses the terminal format. E.g.

	if {[catch {open $cmd r} fh]} {
		error $fh
	} {
		fconfigure $fh -blocking 0
		fileevent $fh readable [list prnout $dlg $fh]
