 I tried this out and got "cannot open driver dbf". Below are the relevant
 errors I think.

 D2/3: c_table_definition()
 D3/3: c_create_bgcmd()
 cat integer
 D2/3: c_create_table() field = 1 key = cat cols = cat integer
 D1/3: Vect_default_field_info(): map = test3 field = 1
 D2/3: drv = dbf db = $GISDBASE/$LOCATION_NAME/$MAPSET/dbf/
 D2/3: driver = dbf, database = $GISDBASE/$LOCATION_NAME/$MAPSET/dbf/
 D2/3: opendir c:/Programs/GIS/OSGeo4W/apps/grass/grass-6.5.svn\driver\db\

 Invalid argument: can't _spawnl
 WARNING: Cannot open driver dbf
