Thanks for the hint. It is hard-coded to the category key it shows.

I have connected a table using column 'gimme' for key:

   $ v.db.connect -p huha_rcl
   Vector map <huha_rcl> is connected by:
   layer <1> table <huha_rcl> in database
   </home/grassdata/spearfish60/sieczka/dbf/> through driver <dbf> with key  

and now v.to.db wants to populate the 'gimme' no matter what column I specify:

   $v.to.db -s map=huha_rcl type=point option=cat column=cat

    Updating database ...
    insert into huha_rcl ( gimme ) values  ( 1 )
    insert into huha_rcl ( gimme ) values  ( 2 )
    insert into huha_rcl ( gimme ) values  ( 3 )
