v.surf.rst estimates a surface from points and then gives you the slope
and aspect resulting directly from the approximation function.
r.slope.aspect uses an existing DEM and calculates slope and aspects
within a 3x3 neighbourhood.
When you say that there are differences, which DEM did you use with
r.slope.aspect ? The one create by the v.surf.rst run ?
