AFAIK, d.* commands aren't supposed to work there.

If you want the output from an arbitrary d.* command to be displayed
in the map window, create a command layer.

The book assumes the use of the legacy XDRIVER for graphics rather
than the GUI. However, XDRIVER isn't available in the native Windows
version (and it has been removed altogether in 7.0). It is available
in the Cygwin version (but I don't think that there are Cygwin
binaries for the 6.4.0 release candidates).

Most of the the commands used in the book should work, but the way
that you use d.* commands is different when using the GUI.
