Yes, I have seen this before.  Go to the directory specified in the
error message (/applications/grass4.0/locks/dolphin/:0.0) and remove 
the x0 lock file using the unix "rm FILENAME" command.  Now you 
should be able to use the "d.mon start=x0" command.

I am not sure why this happens.  Sometimes I get this error when 
GRASS is exited abnormally.
