What you are describing I understand...in further exploration...I discovered that
each time the vector menu was refreshed (i.e. switched between vector to raster to
vector)..the vector would automatically be displayed on all surfaces present. Try
open two rasters..then open a vector...change the display on surface to only
display on one of the rasters. Now, simply refresh the vector menu (i.e. choose
vectors under the Panel menu) and see if both rasters are chosen under display on
surface...it appears as if each time the vector menu script is invoked, it changes
to the defaults (i.e. all surfaces chosen).
This, on a different issue, to the whole grass list:
when first displaying a raster at times, it is not properly displayed. It is not
exaggerated right and most of the times does not even display in the window. I can
usually get around this by pushing the reset button. however, it appears that if
you have more than one raster open it will hang up...
