#3921: GUI fails to start if rc contains missing mapset

 I removed a mapset I was using as the last one. Thus my .grass7/rc file
 was pointing to a non-existing mapset. On next attempt to start GRASS, I
 got only an error:

 Starting GRASS GIS...

 ERROR: Error in GUI startup. See messages above (if any) and if necessary,
 please report this error to the GRASS developers.
 On systems with package manager, make sure you have the right GUI package,
 probably named grass-gui, installed.
 To run GRASS GIS in text mode use the --text flag.
 Use '--help' for further options
      grass79 --help

 As you can see, there are no reasonable error messages. GRASS should be
 able to cope with fact that mapset, locale or gisdbase gas gone missing
 since the last run as rc file is just for convenience.
