At least $HEIGHT and $WIDTH are missing from the name of the file.

They are set by `g.region -gb` rows,cols.

but for me (spearfish) that gives:

G63> g.region -b
pj_transform() failed
cause: failed to load NAD27-83 correction file
ERROR: Error in pj_do_proj (projection of input coordinate pair)

that doesn't look good.

do you see the same?

maybe something to do with g.region/cmd/printwindow.c Rev 2.20+

you say it fails with 6.2.1? that was before those changes.

for me it fails in 6.3-cvs in the same way (due to g.region bug), and
works in 6.2.1.

Ubuntu: try changing the first line of the script to #!/bin/bash
