E.G. Miller still reported about the problem

I'd like to add the hint: Never start grass with "&" !
Concerning your requested tutorial, there isn't any
secret about, but a helpful beginner's tutorial -you
may be lucky, Markus Neteler designed it farsightedly
in English- ready on the European GRASS Server at
University of Hannover:
(It's not up-dated yet to GRASS 5.0.0pre1, but nevertheless
gives an effective start.)
On the german GRASS Server (held in English), you'll find
also some other helpful tutorials of the GRASS Documentation
