Hi Dan, I found that this type of problem occurs when people are trying 
to set up locations and mapsets, or accessing them for the first time, 
and they don't have the required UNIX permissions to do so. For example, 
setting a region means that GRASS will write into a file called WIND 
which lives in your current mapset. If this file is write protected, the 
command will fail. Similar things happen if you try to zoom, change color 
files or generally try to support maps, and if you try to digitize...
	Make sure that you are the owner of the location and its mapsets 
and that you have write permission.
	Hope this helps,
