[GRASS-dev] [bug #2793] (grass) where v.segment creates the p oints

I was trying to figure out more about what is going on with this bug as
well. The side offset gets read from stdin, but never gets used in the
creation of a new line:

while ( fgets (buf, sizeof(buf), stdin) != NULL ) {
	G_debug ( 2, "SEGMENT: %s", G_chop(buf));
	side_offset = 0;
	Vect_reset_line ( SPoints );
	Vect_reset_cats ( SCats );
	switch ( buf[0] ) {
	    case 'P':
		side_offset = 0;
		ret = sscanf ( buf, "%c %d %d %lf %lf", &stype, &id, &lcat,
&offset1, &side_offset);  
                */ OK, side offset has been read */
		if ( ret < 4 ) { 
		    G_warning ( "Cannot read input: %s", buf);
		G_debug (2, "point: %d %d %f %f", id, lcat, offset1,
		/* OK, write point */
                line = find_line ( &In, lfield, lcat );
		if ( line == 0 ) {
		    G_warning ( "Cannot find line of cat %d", lcat);

	        Vect_read_line ( &In, LPoints, LCats, line );
		ret = Vect_point_on_line ( LPoints, offset1, &x, &y, &z,
&angle, NULL);
                /* Should Vect_point_on_line be passed the side offset here?

                if ( ret == 0 ) {
		    len = Vect_line_length ( LPoints );
		    G_warning ( "Cannot get point on line: cat = %d offset =
%f (line length = %f)\n%s",
			         lcat, offset1, len, buf);

                Vect_append_point ( SPoints, x, y, z );
		Vect_cat_set ( SCats, 1, id );

		Vect_write_line ( &Out, GV_POINT, SPoints, SCats);

I thought I might try to follow the program logic to see if anything obvious
was weird, but I'm way out of my league here. Vect_point_on_line is fed
offset1, but not the side_offset; instead, it reads x, y, z and angle, but I
don't know where these come from, or how they're calculated (?).

I have used v.segment in the last days and I'm sure there is a bug in
the side
offset, at least for point mode. The bug is that the offset doesn't
work, it
is always 0.

Folks have been reporting this:
