I've found a workaround for the problem.

Everything is linked to the fact I was using a dual-head configuration.
While my second monitor is on, I have to change the resolution from
1400*1050 to 1280*1024. This seem to cause problem to lots of
application like grass. 

The change causes the resolution not being read correctly :

Before the change :

[EMAIL PROTECTED]:~$ xdpyinfo | grep -A1 dimen 
  dimensions:    1400x1050 pixels (370x278 millimeters)
  resolution:    96x96 dots per inch

After the change :

[EMAIL PROTECTED]:~$ xdpyinfo | grep -A1 dimen 
  dimensions:    1280x1024 pixels (0x0 millimeters)
  resolution:    -2147483648x-2147483648 dots per inch

--> this dirty value is the culprit ;-)

The workaround is to set the DisplaySize value in the Monitor section
of /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

It now runs fine.
