Dear list members,

to update the "global" data set for GRASS I am trying to
import an E00 file. After using 'avcimport' to create 
a binary coverage, OGR seems to have troubles (was working
some month ago):

ogrinfo -summary olson ARC
Had to open data source read-only.
INFO: Open of `olson'
using driver `AVCBin' successful.

Layer name: ARC
Geometry: Line String
Feature Count: 15750
Extent: (-170128861896635013341904755760727851008.000000, -170140544564566716704068949377468596224.000000) - (0.000000, 0.000000)
Layer SRS WKT:
UserId: Integer (0.0)
FNODE#: Integer (0.0)
TNODE#: Integer (0.0)
LPOLY#: Integer (0.0)
RPOLY#: Integer (0.0)

The E00 file is here:
(1.2 MB)
"Major World Ecosystem Complexes Ranked by
Carbon in Live Vegetation" by Olson et al.

Subsequently v.in.ogr doesn't import the file into GRASS 5.7.

Thanks for any hints
