The "programs" in GRASS' bin directory are (almost) all hard links to
etc/front.end. The real programs are in etc/bin/cmd and etc/bin/inter. 
The etc/front.end program just invokes either the cmd or inter
version, depending upon which versions exist and whether any arguments
were supplied.

To debug GRASS modules, specify the path to the program in the
etc/bin/cmd (or inter) directory rather than to the link in the bin
