Looks like my error, Sam.  I don't know that anyone at our site has ever used
the program in interactive mode.  But now that I HAVE, I see the error.

2 workarounds:  (1) use command line arguments (2) move the G_gisinit call in
main.c to precede the call to G_define_flag and recompile the utility.

I have done the latter, and it appears to work in interactive mode now as long
as you have redirected output (the ipw file which is created) on the command
