 Replying to [comment:2 cnielsen]:
 > As the terminal seems to be unavailable when starting with the grass.bat
 icon, personally I would like that file to be left in place.

 hm, on Windows {{{grass64.bat}}} and not the {{{grass64}}} seems to be the
 intended way to start GRASS.  Therefore {{{grass64.bat}}} was customized
 and copied to /bin for OSGeo4W.

 It starts {{{apps/grass/grass-6.4.0svn/etc/Init.bat}}} which in turn
 starts the text or GUI interface and doesn't leave a command prompt open
 in the latter case.

 So if the current behaviour is not intended {{{Init.bat}}} is the place to
 change that.
