Set the following parameters in your .grassrc file found in your home

The numbers represent pixel size- adjust to your own deires.

You could select the CELL monitor first in the script (writes to a file
called D_cell after the monitor is stopped) and then later
select the regular monitor and display the> D_cell file?
