 dupe of #118. continue/reopen there.

 IIUC "UAC" is user account control. ie it prompts you y/n anytime anything
 happens. after 10,000 cases of it crying wolf people tend to shut if off.


 AFAIU from ticket #118 this is really a problem of writing to .tmp/ ???
 Two problems with that theory: 1) r.patch doesn't use G_tempfile()
 directly (maybe the libs do?), 2) why don't other modules that use .tmp/
 fail? or for that matter $MAPSET?

 So switching off UAC may be the solution, I'm not fully convinced about
 the reasons given.


 ps- please add the word "wingrass" into the keywords so it will
 automatically make it onto the wingrass trac wiki errata page.
