yeah, I'll make a list of files soon, it was things like $MAPSET/.tmp/
and $MAPSET/.bash_history.

absolutely! perhaps do it as an addon like the spearfish-imagery dataset?

when tarring it up perhaps the archive flag was given? or so, thus `ls -l`
on the untarred dataset retains the unix filesystem user ID number and
group ID number, which for everyone else but the packager will be wrong.
when the permissions are reset somehow so group rights are needed, or
the GRASS you-must-own-the-mapset rule to write maps gets triggered,
breakage occurs.
