Thanks for the reply.

After re-thinking my problem I'd say that it should rather be a regular
bug - in my opinion in one vector file there may not be two diffrent
features having the same "field:" and "category:" which happens when using
v.patch. Am I wrong?

Maybe the second part of my previous email - the database for the output not
being created - should be taken as a wish?
