Martin, Michael,

you may have some advice or fix on this:

after accidentally typing any d.* command (e.g. d.legend)
into Cmd line an error message pops up

layer type <rastleg> not supported yet

This message is causing two major problems:

1. even if you delete the offending d.* command and use the  
appropriate icon
provided for the task the error message keeps popping up and the best  
to get rid of various erratic behaviors is to quit GRASS. This happens
with d.rast and other d.* commands as well.
Would it be possible to manage this situation in a better way?

2. The message itself is very confusing - people think that you simple
cannot draw a legend because this capability has not been implemented  
How about changing it to something
"d.* commands should be run from GUI, see wxGUI Help"
or maybe others can come up with something better?
