Comment (by timmie):

 this problem still exists on my Windows XP computer with latest Grass

 The failure is definately not caused by PythonXY but by the way Python is
 included in the windows packages.

 I tried to debug:
 1) deinstalled GRASS
 2) deinstalled PythonXY
 3) installed latest GRASS => works fine.
 4) installed offical Python 2.5 =>
 5) installed offical pywintypes =>

 6) tried to start GRASS => no success, same error message.

 Thus, this bug is a blocker for all who have python installed besides a
 GRASS install on windows.
