We are also running in to this problem with Grass v4.12 on our Solaris
machines. We've gotten around that problem mostly by insuring that all
consoles which run Grass run it in a graphics mode set for 256 colors.
However, this doesn't ALWAYS fix the problem...for example, I *still*
cannot get the SCO Unixware machine in the office to connect to a  Grass 
monitor from remote (and the SCO machine has its own X desktop).

We've had other problems with Grass X Monitors as well.

I've been told that this may also be related to the Grass shared libraries.

I'd be interested in hearing if you've been able to solve the problem if you
get more information. I'll be posting my experiences trying to debug this on
the list myself when I have more concrete information.
