r.cost has changed a bit lately, in particular since GRASS version
6.4.0. Please use 6.4.2 if possible. The cost surface used as input
for r.cost must have only positive values, negative values will cause
infinite loops. Please make sure your input cost surface has only
positive values. If the problem persists, it would be great if you
could provide a sample script and/or sample data to reproduce the
problem. At least in 6.4.2 r.cost is working fine.

No, this is not a problem.
