This worked fine, besides the -i flag which doesn't exist (?) in my version.
But now I have new troubles....
In LatLong the display of my map is distored and when I try to add a 
grid I get the following error message

PNG: collecting to file: 

Border not yet implemented for LatLong locations: border not drawn.

apparently LatLong is not supported by Grass as I would like to!

Thanks anyway, it was a try :-).
