I ran into this problem too, working with people from NCAR this Spring. It seemed there to be limited to Windows XP users. Workarounds were difficult.

Subject: [GRASS-dev] saving images from display in winGRASS6.4.2

in the current stable release I am getting the the following error
when trying to save the image from the display. We did not have the
problem in 6.4.1 and I am wondering whether it is fixed in 6.4.3,

thanks Helena
