#819: Problems in displaying postscript labels layer
 Reporter:  clerici      |       Owner:  grass-dev at lists.osgeo.org
     Type:  defect       |      Status:  new                      
 Priority:  normal       |   Milestone:  6.4.0                    
Component:  default      |     Version:  svn-releasebranch64

 Clicking in the GIS Manager the name of a file containing labels to be
 displayed in postscript, an error message is displayed (see error1.png).
 After closing the error window, the attempt of displaying labels in the
 Map Display gives another error (see error2.png) and the Map Display is
 frozen (with grass-6.4.svn_src_snapshot_2009_11_07 and tcl/tk GUI).

 As an example, I created the file '''archlabel''' containing the labels
 from vector '''archsites''' ('''str1''' column) through Vector > Develop
 Map > Create labels (see v.label.png).
 Into the GIS Manager I used the 'Add poscript labels layer' button to load
 the file '''archlabel''' (see GISManager.png). At this point the labels
 can be correctly displayed, but if the name '''archlabel''' in the GIS
 Manager is clicked, the above mentioned error messages are emitted.[[BR]]

 Some other less important problems seem to affect the setting panel, as
 for example the y offset (negative upward in the panel, and positive in
 v.label) or the Background color option that seems to work randomly.[[BR]]
