If you can manage to install a 6.4.0rc, many things may be fixed.

(bgcmd needs to have the d.rast part too, not just a map name)

are you running this from the GUI or from the command prompt?

In the tcltk gis.m GUI output window + [Run] box thing the command
needs to be quoted in Tcl style:

 v.digit -n  map=name_of_vector bgcmd={d.rast picture1 at my_mapset}

hope it helps,
