Dear list, 

I updated GRASS 5.7 from CVS this morning and can't display 
vector maps anymore. I tried in several locations, with several maps. 
I can see and select maps, but that's it.

GRASS 5.7.cvs:~ > g.list vect
vector files available in mapset PERMANENT:
archsites     soils           t_9961_300      t_county       
bugsites      soistr          t_9961_300_all  t_hydro        
fields        streams         t_9961_300_bks  t_powerlines   
quads         t_9961_100      t_9961_400      tractids       
GRASS 5.7.cvs:~ > d.vect roads
ERROR: Vector file [roads] not available

the more detailed error messageusing the GIS Manager is:
