[GRASS-user] WIND file not changing, set to DEFAULT_WIND

env | grep WIND returns no WIND_OVERRIDE variable.

I am using the "Map Display" window used by GIS Manager and not  a
monitor produced by d.mon, is this anything to do with the issue?

Is there a command to update current region to the view displayed by the
"Map Display" window?

Check whether the environment variable WIND_OVERRIDE is set. If it is,
the named region specified by that variable is used instead of the WIND

GRASS requires a mapset directory to contain a WIND file in order for it
to be recognised as a mapset. However, if the WIND file has been
deleted, you can create a new one by copying the DEFAULT_WIND file, so
it isn't a difficult situation to recover from.
