 > I uploaded new patch with original whitespaces/tabs.
 > I looked how it is done in d.text module. Now is the margin of the text
 box calculated from width and height of the text inside text box.
 > Another problem is that if user uses flag -g or -w. The geographical
 grid isn't horizontal/vertical so the labels are a bit rotated. But I
 couldn't find any way how to rotate the text box for filling background. I
 attached an image.

 Thank you, I committed it. I don't think the rotation is a huge problem
 here for most cases. You could look at d.labels, it can do the rotation of
 the background. But I don't think you should focus on this now.

 More testing welcome.
