On 13 July I sent a question about problems of importing shape files.
I was asked about which GRASS version I was using, but got no
suggestions of what to do with my shape files. Here I try again, hoping
for more reactions. 

I have just started to try to use Grass, and have som problems with
import of vector images. I have succeeded in importing a vector image by
using m.in.e00, and have even managed to transform the vector map to
raster by v.to.rast.

But when I try to import the same vector data as a shape file (with
default options) I get the following messages:

Processing shape   1 of 159
Processing shape   159 of 159
Number of shapes registered is 0
Number of parts registered is 167
Number of valid records is 391848 of 0
Extracting and storing area edges...

   Tracking line       1.
   Tracking line       2.
   Tracking line       3.
   Tracking line       4.

When I use the command line I even get a message of Segmentation fault.

In the directories dig and dig_att I get a file with the correct name
and size 0.

I am running GRASS 5.0.0pre1 (May 2001) on Solaris 2.7

Can anyone tell me what might be wrong?
