Yes it does work for me (XP). Selecting the 3D view locks up the desktop
for about 20sec the first time I try it (0% cpu load, not sure what it's
doing, maybe doing a deep search on the disk for the module), but then
shows the pop up error message and goes on its way. Selecting the 
digitizer pops up a feature unavail. message without any problem.

I notice that you don't see the message warning you that that stuff is not
there in the msys xterm window until after you exit the GUI. And then it
suggests that you need a newer version of GRASS to fix it, which is perhaps

works for me.

Yes, applied to all branches. (please test) 
I also did all the other G_getl()s in lib/imagery.

IIRC these had been low priority as we can assume that all those files
were written by the imagery library, which only uses fprintf(fp, "\n");.
The flaw in that assumption may come from if the GUIs are writing the
POINTS file etc. directly using some native writel tcl/python command,
or if the user had been going about it by hand in a text editor.
As such I'm not fully convinced this will be the cause + solution to the
problem, but at least will rule something obvious out.
Regardless, now the read is newline independent.

any update on bug #707?
