 Replying to [comment:1 mlennert]:

 > 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
 /grass-dev/2011-September/055675.html this thread] where the issue was

 seems like a "tricky feature" even for powerusers. When selecting features
 (by cats, etc), should be probably selected features from all layers
 (`layer=-1`) which pass the condition, not all features (silently ignoring
 given condition or constraint).
