Looks like your system got corrupted.  Maybe an interrupted security update, though recent updates haven't touched QD.framework (according to timestamps on my Macs).  Or some other poorly-made installer or updater messed around in the system.  Are you having problems with any other applications?

If you use Time Machine, I'd try restoring a previous state.  Otherwise you may have to reinstall the system.

Just to be sure - you did install the correct GRASS package for your system?  Leopard/Snow Leopard - 10.5/10.6.
