Did you rebuild the fifos?  It is my understatnding that they get "lost" in
a tar.  Someone else will have to post on how to do that, but it is an
operating system command.

(The "fifos" are mysterious little beings that live in the device
directories of GRASS code and binaries, where they slow down X signals in
order to collect tolls or something.  Then they let the signals pass -- that why
it takes so long for things to draw, etc.  :-)   )
