[GRASS-user] Can't create locations using EPSG codes

Trying to create a new location from the Grass intro screen, using EPSG code
2036 (New Brunswick Double Stereographic)gives the following error:

child process exited abnormally
child process exited abnormally
    while executing
"exec -- $env(GISBASE)/etc/grass-xterm-wrapper -e
$env(GISBASE)/etc/make_location_epsg.sh  $epsg_code $epsgLocation $locpath
>@stdout 2>@stderr"
    invoked from within
".optPopup.submit invoke"
    ("uplevel" body line 1)
    invoked from within
"uplevel #0 [list $w invoke]"
    (procedure "tk::ButtonUp" line 22)
    invoked from within
"tk::ButtonUp .optPopup.submit"
    (command bound to event)

This error occurs using every EPSG code I'm familiar with. Let's check my
epsg file to make sure 2036 is there:

cd /usr/share/proj
cat epsg | grep "<2036>"
<2036> +proj=stere +lat_0=46.5 +lon_0=-66.5 +k=0.999912 +x_0=2500000
+y_0=7500000 +ellps=GRS80 +towgs84=0,0,0,0,0,0,0 +units=m +no_defs  <>

Yup. Can anyone reproduce this error for me? I'm using Ubuntu 6.06.
