I saw the same on a Linux box of a friend. That was a CVS 6.1 Grass about 
two monts old now. However in the same time, with the same Grass version I 
didn't have that odd effect.

I wonder if the reason could had been related that my friend was working in 
Grass 6.1 CVS using datasets created long time ago in Grass5. Although the 
double PERMANENT seemed odd it doesn't seem to have done any harm.
