I dont have Xgrass on my home computer, but at work  i compiled grass
under  Linux with the version of Lesstif provided by grass. First I
have the same behavior than you discribe, I can pass this step by
passing parameters in command line argument to xgrass (try xgrass
--help or something like this) for location mapset and database.
like xgrass -location=leics -mapset=dreau
