I think you found a bug. I set up a location with the specifications you
provided and v.in.dxf failed for me as it did for you. I then managed to
import the same dxf file (Sample.dxf) into two other applications without
trouble. Then I extracted the VERTEX data from Sample.dxf file and
converted that to a dig_ascii file and read that in. That worked and
displayed within the window that you specified.
The dxf file consists of three POLYLINE objects, which in my experience
are little-used; the LWPOLYLINE is more common. I think you came across a
problem with v.in.dxf and POLYLINE objects.
Unfortunately, that doesn't help with your problem.
