With gis.m or "gis.m" the results are the same, child process exited 
With d.mon x0, a monitor is activated.
With g.region -p, there is no respond or error

and for all the child process errors shown on the Xwindow, the errors shown 
in the Cygwin command prompt is:

winMultiWindowxMsgProcErrorHandler - Error: Badwindow (invalid Window 

What seem to be the problem?? why can I open a mapset within a location in 
the grass_data directory when they are properly configured?

Any help is much appreciated.
