I tried to reproduce this but had no problems. However, there is something
curious about your report. The Spearfish dataset is in UTM and you are
talking about a grid in latlon. I wonder if you cannot draw a geodetic grid
(i.e., using DD:MM:SS) in a projected location.

> I get an error in gis.m when trying to redraw the map canvas when I have a
> geogrid layer and a text layer both redrawing simultaneously.
> Steps to reproduce, in Spearfish:
> 1. Add Geology, and Roads to gis.m. Set display region to Geology.
> 2. Add a Grid layer. Choose the following display options: Geodetic grid,
> black text and line color, turn border text off, set grid size to '00:05:00'
> (five arcminutes).
> 3. Add a text layer. Text to display was a label for the 103 45'W meridian,
> choose mouse placement, bold text, rotate -88 degrees. All other options set
> to default values.
> 4. Click 'Redraw all layers'.
> 5. Important: Turn the 'draw border text' option on the geogrid layer OFF.
> 4. Click 'Redraw all layers' on the map display window.
> Error is produced; See attached a log file for details.
