 See comment:6 and comment:7

 The owner of the ticket wondered why the Map Culculator did not show up
 when searching for r.mapcalc in the wxGUI command search option.

 When I search for r.colors, I get 4 hits, so it is obviously possible in
 the wxGUI command search to link a given command to more than one GUI
 dialog and to link it to a custom dialog that is not generated
 automatically by parsing [command] --interface-description. The
 interactive map calculator is a GUI front end for r.mapcalc, so it would
 be nice if that shows up when searching for r.mapcalc in the wxGUI command
 search option.

 r.mapcalc just for a quick wxGUI fix. OTOH, it's the only GUI in trunk,
 and default for 6.4+ IIRC...

 testing. Moreover trunk is used for development. Broken r.mapcalc has been
 fixed very soon thanks to Glynn. So where is the problem?

 IMHO, as a main contributor to the wxGUI, you should spend most of the
 time testing because it is still quite experimental to quote you.

 My problem is that I don't like quick and dirty fixes and that I think
 it's a good idea if main contributors test changes first before committing
 so as not to break things.

 Closing ticket because something shows up now when searching for the
 command in question in the wxGUI command search and because this
 discussion is no longer really related to the ticket, it's just my
 personal nagging about (more) testing and being more careful when trying
 to fix something.
