can you try without setting the output= option? then it will send
data to stdout and you can see why v.in.ascii is unhappy.

doesn't look like any data is getting there.

You might try commenting out the "rm" line at the end of the file and
then looking at the bits left over in $MAPSET/.tmp/$HOST/ to see how
far the data makes it.

note: known bug (unreleated), db link must be set with db.connect
before using the module; if DBF, then a $MAPSET/dbf/ dir must exist
too? [haven't tested in a while]
