Comment(by mmetz):

 In GRASS 7, the coor file format version is 5.1, as are the topo and sidx
 file format versions, and the cidx file format version is 5.0. These are
 internal versions that may or may not have changed across major GRASS
 version changes. Changing this version numbering and the related messages
 is possible for GRASS 7, but I'm afraid not for GRASS 6. As a user, you
 will just have to rebuild topology or upgrade to a newer GRASS version. As
 a developer, you can check include/vect/dig_defines.h to check versions
 and backward compatibility. Note that the GRASS version in use has no
 chance to figure out the version numbers of GRASS used to create the
 vector, all it can say is that the creating version must have been some
