Thanks much for testing. AFAIK, there is nothing in the GUI that is  
run with su or sudo, and the wxPython GUI does not call any bash  
shell script commands. So this is an odd error.

I'm real tied up at the moment (at the Society for American  
Archaeology meetings and giving papers tomorrow), but hope to get a  
chance to get back to working on the GUI with Martin in the next  
month or so. I'll try to test for your error running i.group from the  
georectifier. Does the rest of it work OK?

Important: What versions of Python and wxPython are you using?
