#86: grass-pkg: typo in iexplorer path

    Type:  defect  |      Status:  new                        
Priority:  major   |   Component:  Documentation              
 Version:          |    Keywords:  grass                      

 in the GRASS 6.4.0-2 package there's a typo in

 set GRASS_HTML_BROWSER= has "\Internet Exporer\" instead of "\Internet
 Explorer\" (missing "l"). This makes it so none of the help pages load.

 tested & fails on multiple systems.

 AFAICS that file (or the script to build that file) is not in any of the
 usual SVN places.. where dost it come from?

 also that batch file '''must''' do:
  `set GRASS_PYTHON=%OSGEO4W_ROOT%\bin\python.exe`

 the only reason we got away with that not being set before was because it
 was mostly hardcoded in the code, but now that's fixed upstream so the
 next 6.4svn snapshot or RC will break without it.


 ps- in case you have any ideas, "nviz" doesn't load from the wxGUI, but
 does from the tcltk GUI.
  - from the wxGUI DOS box if I type "nviz" I get %errorlevel% of 1 and it
 instantly returns to the dos prompt. If I do "nviz -q" it starts (adding a
 command line param skips the startup options menu and loads the app
 directly). Apparently it won't launch GUI windows from the DOS prompt.
 'g.gui wxpython' similarly fails to do anything.
  - from the wxGUI File menu "NVIZ (tcl/tk)" loads the startup options menu
 (select "quickstart" button in options tab), but when you hit Run it
 instantly returns. (also seen in the non-osgeo4w windows installer)
