Thanks for the help Larry,

I think I found out what I did wrong. There was a .bashrc.save file in
the directory and I believe grass changed my bashrc and then it did
not change back. I restored the old bashrc.save and now everything is
back. Probably the old temporary files where not cleaned up correctly
