Package: grass
Version: 6.2.3-2.1
Severity: important

If I start GRASS from gnome-terminal, it starts without any problem.

But when I try to start it from the GNOME GUI (e.g. using a launcher)
I can only get the startup dialog and choose the location.

After that, the Slesia map splash screen shows up and then... GRASS
exits. That's all.

I'm baffled because usually I would start the program from a terminal
to see what's wrong, but if run from a terminal everything goes fine.

Please give me instructions on how to collect the proper information.
