Hi Ilja,

have a look here:

 -> GRASS tips 'n tricks

Error messages: To avoid sending error messages by email, generate an empty
file called GIS_ERROR_LOG in your home directory: 
        cd $HOME 
        touch GIS_ERROR_LOG 
Then set the environment variable GRASS_STDERR to 1 (or any other
value), now errors will be printed into $HOME/GIS_ERROR_LOG: 
        export GRASS_STDERR=1 
    or, depending on your shell 
        setenv GRASS_STDERR 1 

Hope this helps,
