While I am all for fixing 6.4, is there a reason that you cannot
switch to GRASS GIS 7? Just curious...

While I have no special idea (it will be about char encoding), can it
be that you use it in French locale?

I found something similar fixed in r52329. (btw, such "strange"
references always refer to code changes, in this case
https://trac.osgeo.org/grass/changeset/52329 )
