Comment (by hamish):

 This still doesn't work for v.type_wrapper.py and g.change.gui.py using
 latest native WinGrass installer (Colin's 6.4.0.svn r38537 2009-07-29).

 wxGUI `Vector -> Develop -> Convert object types` menu item gives a
 windows dialog:
  Windows cannot open this file:
  File: v.type_wrapper.py
 To open this file, Windows needs to know what program created it. ...
 [*] Use the web service to find the approp prog
 [ ] Select the program from a list

         [ok] [cancel]

 and if you press cancel the wxGui layer manager output tab comes back with
 a Traceback error ending in
 Unable to fetch interface description for command

 `echo $PATHEXT` in the associated Msys terminal ends in ';.PY',
 so at least that part of lib/init/init.bat or init.sh is getting run.

 neither $PATH nor $PYTHONPATH includes $GISBASE/etc/gui/scripts/
 see this trac ticket log for some sys.path.append(guiscriptspath) ideas.

 also I'd note that NVIZ still doesn't start from the wxGUI:
 `File -> NVIZ (req tcltk)` brings up the NVIZ launch dialog and lets you
 select a map but when you hit [Run] it just returns after 0sec. Same if
 you try from the wxGui Cmd> prompt.  But if you type 'nviz -q' at the
 associated Msys terminal it brings it up ok.
