I would like to wait to look more at the r.out.gdal null data issue and
the latest d.vect default render mode changes before releasing 6.3.0. 
Also it would be nice to have v.buffer finally fixed but I don't think
anyone is working on that. It's a bit embarassing to have such bugs in
a flagship module.

would you explain the logic of the fix? it is not obvious to me, but
superficially lat,lon seems outside the set of float,int. I am trying
to understand if this is a proper fix or a hack which works around a
corner case. ie it may be a fix, but is it the right one?
(nice to put such logic as comment in the code or svn commit message)
