The varchar problem was the similar issue for mysql/pgsql. DBF
tables don't have such a thing, just fixed-length char. But the way
the grass gdal driver is written, it doesn't set the length for char
columns, or any other columns, so number columns will default to
whatever they default to in OGR (24.15 by the looks of your example).
Fixing it is a little beyond me. I can do basic stuff by example
(that's how I was able to fix the varchar problem in mysql/pgsql),
but I'd have to dig around in the drivers to find an example to fix
the grass dbf problem.
Maybe Radim can help.
