[GRASS-dev] gis.m symbol error in cvs

I fixed this and committed it to the CVS.

As I suspected, it was in the subroutine to add vector symbols to the GRASS
selection control (line 187-204). The incorrect "[symbol]@[symbol
directory]" was hard coded into line 199--possibly for an earlier version of
selecting symbols. This did not show up before, because of bugs in the rest
of the code. I replaced this with "[symbol directory]/[symbol]" as we
currently use it.
