In info.grass.user you write:

GO into GRASS and do a g.manual on the command 'v.clean'.  I believe
your answer is there.   You can run v.clean on the original file or
write a script on the dig_ascii file to remove all the lines that
begin with a small 'l' for linear areas, or a small 'a' for areal
areas.  (Do a more on one of the files to see what I mean) I
recommend the former approach.

Gee I wish my problems with GRASS were as easily solved......
