A week back, I reported that I couldn't import any ascii file with 
string characters using s.in.ascii for GRASS 5.3 (it gave me a malloc 

I just had a report from a student using GRASS 5.3 under Cygwin 
(Windows XP) that s.in.ascii doesn't work at all in this context. It 
gives a 'segmentation fault. core dump' error.

s.in.ascii is the only way you can get multi attribute data into GRASS 
5.3 for points unless you use PostgreSQL. Could someone please look 
into this? Thanks much.
