Hmmm. Is the DEFAULT_WIND file located in the PERMANENT mapset? I seem to
recall that Grass likes to have a PERMANENT mapset defined for each location
with a DEFAULT_WIND file stored there, but I'm not sure. Also, did you check to
see if Grass is functioning properly with one of the sample datasets (eg
spearfish)? If not, then you can get the datasets from the Grass Euopean site:

or one if its mirror sites. Just follow the link for the "Sample data page" off
the table on the home page.
