We only had a few problems with the command line interface, but since we got
xgrass running we haven't had many problems.

Not too sure what's happening here.. we don't use lat/long here very often. In
fact one of my colleagues just converted a file to lat/long and this was the
first time we've used it.

This is strange. If a dialog box doesn't even pop up then the problem is with
the xclip program. Unfortunately, we have never had this problem and I'm not
sure exactly how xclip works. Did you check all the warnings that the compiler
gave? Sometimes warnings shouldn't be ignored (even though some people seem to
think otherwise) and there may have been something that is causing the problem.
If you want, I can put a file with all the changes I made to the xgrass code
(and grass if you like) on our ftp site for your reference.

Sorry, I can't help here.

No, we have always compiled the code.

I don't really understand why you are having these problems. I've only been on
the mailing list for a little over a year and I don't remember anyone reporting
these problems. Sorry I couldn't be of much help this time.
