[GRASSLIST:7118] RE: GRASS 6 problem

We've just encountered the same problem while attempting to install Grass,
on a PC, in a multi-user format.  We have yet to figure out exactly how to
fix it, but the problem seems to be related to permissions to write to the
location (however just changing permission settings is not working) when
multiple users attempt to use Grass.  It seems especially strange that we
can create new mapsets within locations (and set the search path to the
originals), but not enter any created mapsets.  If anyone has this figured
out, we'd love to know.

We recently had a disk failure, fortunately our GRASS database data was 
backed up. We are now pointed to the backup until things are restored. 
The problem is, in GRASS 6 that when the dialog comes up to select a 
location and mapset, the locations are selectable but no mapsets are 
listed - but they are there. Since the files are on a different machine, 
is this a Linux group permissions issue that prevent the mapset from 
being listed in the dialog? How do I get around this without creating 
new mapsets?

When accessing the same GRASS mapsets using GRASS 5.4 I have the same
