Comment(by mlennert):

 Replying to [ticket:1900 pvanbosgeo]:
 > In the d.vector window, under the tab 'selection' there is the option to
 select category values. Presumably entering one or more cats values, only
 those should be displayed. However, entering values does not do anything,
 the whole map is still displayed.
 > Also using a SQL statement to limit what is displayed does not work.

 If you want to use the cat or select option, you have to select the
 specific layer you want to select features in. In grass6 this is layer 1
 by default, but this is no longer true in grass7 where -1 (i.e. all
 layers) is the default (since r45095 two years ago) and so you have to
 explicitely select the layer. See also [http://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail
