[GRASS-dev] GRASS 6.2.2 release candidate preparation

The only thing I can think of is if you want to backport the font selection
utility I've added. If so, it should probably be backported as is right now.
Currently, it uses a TclTk file browser to pick a font to use with
GRASS_FONT. I am about to change this to a scrolling list control that will
pick a font from the list generated by d.font -l.

BUT, I don't think this new method will work with the rest of 6.2.2 because
it needs recent updates to the font drivers and Glynn's new mkftcap script.
So 6.2.2 should stick with the file selection approach.

I also went through recently (several weeks back) and added catch clauses to
all open and close statements to make the GUI more robust against crashing.
This affected a large portion of the TclTk modules. I don't know if this was
backported or not.
