I'll tell you what worked for me, though I make no guarantees it'll 
work for you.

I deleted the .grass5rc file from my home directory.  That caused GRASS 
to re-write the file.  You'll have to go through the setup - location 
of your data, and so forth - but it'll work.

Make sure to save your old .grass5rc file - "cp .grass5rc .grass5rc.bk" 
or something similar.  If you don't mind editing the .*rc file, you 
might just have something corrupted.

Otherwise, check your error logs.  Recent messages to the list have 
discussed how to do this.

Good luck -

PS I've only started using (read: learning) GRASS myself, so my 
suggestion may not apply.  Or, I could be cracking walnuts with a 
sledgehammer. :)
