Hi Eric and others,

I repeated the v.to.rast operation with the same parameters and this 
time I obtained a raster coverage of solid polygons. Not sure what 
happened, the history log doesn't show that I did anything different 
than the first time... Mystery, but it worked!

Thanks to all for your help
