Dear List

I am using Grass-7.0 beta3 installed via osgeo4w 32bit installer on Windows
8 64 bit. I have also installed Grass-7.0 beta3 via the windows installer
and have the same problem.

I get the error below and not sure what is happening:

Launching <wxpython> GUI in the background, please wait...
/usr/bin/bash.exe: Command not found
Cleaning up temporary files...

Goodbye from GRASS GIS

I also have Grass 6.4.4 installed via osgeo4w and it works fine.
