Comment (by helena):

 I just posted the exact same issue year ago and then, forgetting the
 answer, couple weeks ago again.
 It is the VISTA UAC problem - it needs to be disabled (whatever that
 means). Most VISTA users have it disabled
 because it is causing trouble with other software too, but some don't  (I
 have two students
 who got the error, for others it worked).
 It is obvious that we need to change the message that GRASS gives for this
 situation because r.patch is so commonly used,
 if at all possible. Or we can just hope that VISTA goes away soon?
