 Weird. In your other post at the user ml, the grass database connection
 was the standard dbf connetion. Is this a fresh install of 6.4.0 or of

 db.connect should not pick up anything from v.in.ogr dsn=. In fact,
 whatever is specified in the dsn option should be completely ignored by
 grass because it is the duty of the OGR library to cope with the dsn
 option. At least in the v.in.ogr source code, the dsn option is passed as
 is, without any checks, to the OGR library. In theory, it could be that
 the wxGUI is doing something with the dsn option and accidentally changes
 the default database connection. That would be a bug.

 Regarding current 6.4.1, are you using the new wxGUI dialog (File->Import
 vector data->Common import formats) or the original command dialog which
 you get when clicking that button at the bottom of the new dialog?
