-> here is the problem!

You probably got into the dbfdriver trap: I was updating the
shapelib in GRASS to GDAL 1.2.6. But there is a bug in the dbf driver
in GDAL which made integer columns to floating point columns.
This bug was present over one weekend, then I discovered it
and reverted.

Later I updated again to 1.2.6 along with a bugfix
suggested by Frank:


Please update your installation and report again.
