I am glad to hear this since I am preparing to check the tonight.
If you look at the v.cutter code, you may find comments that has "to do" or
"not sure" in them.  The grass vector file format seems to be very wasty on
disk space.  I had one which is about 50 MB, but only 30 MB in ARC/INFO.
Maybe someone can work on a compressed version.
