 I tried on Windows7 (instead of XP as earlier) and I could reproduce the
 same error there. The English version of the error message is "`/GRASS was
 unexpected at this time.`"

 the method seems pretty much the same as the GRASS_WISH and GRASS_GUI ones
 nearby, so I'm not sure what would be wrong with it, or why it matters in
 7,8 but not XP, but it seems to be treating the forward-slash dirseps in
 GISBASE as a switch(?).

 try r56137,8.

 an alternative solution might be to try to pass the 8.3 shortname version
 of %GISBASE%. (`echo %~sI`)
