I thought I might try to find the problem before using the bug tracker.

It's a small utility that I wrote several years ago.  I was able to read
the dxf file with Surfer 6 and with Star Office.  I think either of those
applications probably could have been used to re-write a dxf that GRASS
could understand.

No problem, but under separate cover.

I don't think it's that simple.  It may have had something to do with the
fact that the polyline objects weren't closed, or something even more
obscure, like the polylines weren't assigned to a named layer.
