Please report this to grassbug at This has been
reported but without a script I haven't been able to get
to fails. Can you include a script for the spearfish database
that I can use to track down the problem. There is one obvious
]bug in do_labels.c - size is not properly initialized and text
that doesn't explicitly set size could fail.
