[GRASS-user] GRASS 6.4.3 fails to start

Trying to start GRASS 6.4.3 from the GUI (KDE) shows the small
welcome screen asking the user to choose a project location and map
set, or define a new location and start GRASS.  The splash screen then
briefly appears.  It then fails without a whimper.  Trying to start
GRASS in a console opens the same small window with options, the same
flash of the splash screen, and then displays the following:

GRASS 6.4.3 (RidgeCrest):~ > Traceback (most recent call last):

GRASS does seem to have started, but there seems to be problem with
initiating the tool bar?

I am running GRASS 6.4.3 on an Opensuse 13.1 with KDE 4.11.5 on an AMD
Phenom II based platform.

Suggestions or help appreciated.
