i updated d.m/vector.tcl that it can handle multiple categories. the
problem is, that the categories are hard-coded (the icons aren't
anymore, they are selected with a GSelect window) and i haven't figured
out how to have them updated without having to change the source code.
i hope that a can upload the changes to cvs next week that you can have
a look at them.

although d.vect works again, there is one issue left. with the current
selector, the icons are limited to those in the basic directory. as the
items on the list created by the new function are something like
"basic/icon", d.vect doesn't accept for example "demo/icon" anymore as
the "demo" directory doesn't appear anywhere on the possible list.
thus, this version of d.vect doesn't properly work with my changes to
vector.tcl or a cli call of d.vect as they both allow the use of other
symbol directories than "basic".
for now, that doesn't really matter as there is are no other symbols as
those in basic (at least officially, who know what guys have on there
hard drives) but once there are more symbol collections this issue has
to be addressed.
