well: so I have added dig_cats support to v.bubble (was not
implemented there). Additionally I have fixed it for v.circle,
the numbers for dig_att were wrong and the file not closed.
Additionally I have applied a fix from Bob Covill to avoid
crashes on Solaris (v.bubble).

Both should be fine now.

Now back to try v.to.sites...
