Hope here:

I recently implemented a "steps" parameter (get from CVS):
d.leg.thin help
 d.leg.thin [-nsm] map=name [color=name] [lines=value] [thin=value]
  labelnum   Number of labels for legend description
             options: 2-100
             default: 5

The new labelnum allows to overcome this problem at least partly.
Maybe someone want to implement a mechanism to define the minimum
value to be displayed?

Sorry Helena, but I was hesitating to modify your text.
My apologize (I was just to lasy to write it again with own words).
