To follow up on a recent thread, I'm also in favor of trying to get  
6.4 released. I know of 2 major issues

1) v.delaunay is still badly broken <http://trac.osgeo.org/grass/ticket/660 
2) nviz will not launch from the wxpython menu in Windows. Because  
this does launch from the Msys command line, I suspect that it is  
something in the wxpython code (perhaps menuform.py). I don't think  
this is the same as <http://trac.osgeo.org/grass/ticket/627>

There may be another Windows issue, but I'm not sure. When trying to  
create a location from a georeferenced file in Windows XP, 2 student  
got the same error

r.in.gdal input=F:\Documentele mele\GIS DataBase\SRTM_ff03_p184r028.tif 
\SRTM_ff03_p184r028.tif output=GIS_Group title=S_Carpathians_Romania  
ERROR: region for current mapset is not set
run "g.region"

Both students were trying to import geotif SRTM files from the GLCF  
site. They were importing different files and I've never run into  
problems with files from this site before.

However, another student successfully imported a georeferenced geotif  
of an ASTER DEM from another site, and created a location in Windows  
Vista. Both were using the same GRASS 6.4RC5 binary.
