The whole r55395 was more or less an experiment (let's leave it
reverted). But don't understand what caused the error (and how it is
related to pygrass import).

Moreover, I think that pygrass.modules module does not use ctypes. So,
pygrass.modules itself (withou the rest of pygrass) is not dangerous
from this point of view. There are some other problems such as slower
start of the GUI.
