 The wxGUI crashes quite ungracefully if .grasswx6 does not exist

   File "/home/metz/src/grass-6.4.svn/dist.x86_64-unknown-linux-
 gnu/etc/wxpython/gui_modules/preferences.py", line 698, in _readFile
     file = open(filename, "r")
 IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/metz/.grasswx6'
 Error in GUI startup. If necessary, please
 report this error to the GRASS developers.

 The failing function _readFile does not make sense to me because it tries
 to read the file even if it could not be opened. A simple test if the file
 exists fixes the problem.
