I agree with Moritz, maybe the user set it that way for a reason.

But if you have a quick way of turning it on (ISTR that either the TweakUI
PowerTool or cmd.exe's context menu Properties gave you the option to turn it
on) You could leave it commented out in the .bat file, and/or add a note to the
WinGRASS help page* about how to turn it on and link to the page that talks
about enabling it for map names**.

  or is there something newer on the wiki?

  but that needs an update for GRASS 6? anyone using this?
