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.
