wxGUI crashes if settings file .grasswx6 does not exist

Description

The wxGUI crashes quite ungracefully if .grasswx6 does not exist

  File "/home/metz/src/grass-6.4.svn/dist.x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/etc/wxpython/gui_modules/preferences.py", line 698, in _readFile
    file = open(filename, "r")
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/metz/.grasswx6'
Error in GUI startup. If necessary, please
report this error to the GRASS developers.

The failing function _readFile does not make sense to me because it tries to read the file even if it could not be opened. A simple test if the file exists fixes the problem.

Right, hopefully fixed in r46585 (backported to G64 in r46586).
