r.what in wxGUI should not depend on computational region

Description

r.what in wxGUI should not depend on computational region like it does. Example:

  1. In GRASS terminal set your region to something outside the raster map you are going to query, e.g.:
g.region n=2 e=2 w=1 s=1 res=1 -a
  1. Add a raster map to manager.
  1. Right-click it > Zoom to selected map.
  1. Query anywhere within the map - r.what always returns NULL, in error.
  1. Now again in terminal set region to cover the whole map.
  1. Query again in wxGUI - now it works.

GUI's region and computational region should be separate.

The GUI can set the GRASS_REGION or WIND_OVERRIDE enviro variables prior to running to locally/temporarily change the region.

see the variables.html help page for usage, and/or lib/gis/get_window.c

unless WIND_OVERRIDE already exists, GRASS_REGION might be the one to use here.

ps- thanks to you both for working through this flood of wxgui bug reports. It can be really frustrating dealing with them all but the result will be a much more solid and usable GUI upon release. kudos!
