ah, ok, yes it still fails there for me to.

6.4.3svn on XP from the wxGUI command console:

r.mapcalc "either = 0 || 1"

unterminated string
syntax error, unexpected $end, expecting NAME or STRING
Parse error
'1\""' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

I've no idea how to fix it.

another suggestion to bypass the problem is to start with the MSys or
C:\> command windows; that's actually the default in wingrass7. if a
real terminal should open or not when grass is started with the default
desktop icon remains an open question.

I thought it was there too, maybe it was in the comments of one of
the long tickets about the C:\Files having the \F being treated as
a quoted literal "F"? eg https://trac.osgeo.org/grass/ticket/1447

shrug, nothing here:

so maybe it needs its own ticket.

right, a ticket to refer back to would be good though.
