Well Roger,
thank you for spending time on it.
Will you send a bug report to th bug tracker?
Btw what applications do you use for xtracting the VERTEX data?
Will you pour ma a favour and send me the dig_ascii files you made?
Is it possible that the Sample.dxf is a diffrent (maybe newer) 
.dxf-version than GRASS could deal with?

have a nice weekend
