[GRASS-dev] [bug #5200] (grass) d.what.vect: WARNING: Color: can'tset color 50331648

I can confirm the problem Maciek is having with d.m in 6.3:

In Spearfish:
1. d.m 
2. add 'quads' vector to GIS manager
3. click query button
4. WARNING: Color: can't set color -1

Actually, most of the interactive tools in d.m are broken for me; such as
the zoom tool, measure, query, geographical position query.

Strange. For me it still issues the WARNING as I described. Anybody

That is not correct. It is there no matter how you call d.what.vect. Eg.
d.what.vect -x from terminal - the last module's word is still always:

I don't agree. The change of the cursor shape and the lack of the window
query results, if called in d.m, or the GRASS prompt back, if called
terminal, are enough information. See d.what.rast.

Ha, so here's the problem: the -f switch. It is hardcoded into d.m
(etc/dm/vector.tcl). While querying vectors it always flashes *black*
for me.
The middle switch doesn't change the flash color for me either. This is
not a
d.m issue, as this also happens even when I call d.what.vect -f (with or
without -x) from terminal - I keep on getting:

WARNING: Color: can't set color 33554432
WARNING: Color: can't set color 50331648
WARNING: Color: can't set color 50331648

This is not a new issue. It croped up *about* a month ago.
