There is "Print query output as text in terminal" check box in
vector options. The problem is, that '-x' is now hardcoded
in d.m, I think that we should return to original

   set cmd "d.what.vect map=$opt($id,map)"
   if { $opt($id,_query_text) } {
     append cmd " -t"	

and we can discuss if the check box should be default on or off.
I believe that people using d.m usually also wants to use GUI
for d.what.vect, so I think, that the default value for that checkbox
should be off if it works for more users than it doesn't.

How many users do have the problem with form?
