[GRASS5] [bug #4024] (grass) d.m, v.in.ascii: columns hint leads to errors

Again, the dialogs that pop up when you run a GRASS command are NOT a part
of the dm/GIS Manager. They are generated from the C-code of the module (or
the script code for shell scripts). If you want to report a bug or wish with
one of these dialogs and get it fixed, don't report it as a dm bug. I agree
that some of these could use better descriptions of options. Suggested text
improvements would help those who maintain the relevant modules.

In this case, you need to report this as a bug for v.in.ascii--not d.m.
