But there is a terminal, but it fails before getting to the screen where 
you define the location extension. So must be something about how this 
screen is constructed.

If I do not use Huidae's grass.bat (which actually launches cmd.exe as 
terminal), but I launch grass from a Msys teminal (after setting path to 
include postgresql/bin and GRASS_WISH=wish84), and I then try to launch 
the location creation with projection values, it fails immediately, with 
the following error:

Cleaning up temporary files.....
