could you send me the file (or a subset) to try?
[Yahoo gets grumpy if the attachment is too big.. if it bounces, let me
know and we can make other arangements]

You may be able to do something on the command line with something like:
'dbview -b <filename.dbf> | cut -d":" -f1,2,3,4 | s.in.ascii'

I seem to remeber there were some fixes to s.in.dbf by Thierry Laronde
that never got applied (mostly because GRASS 5.7 will read in DBF files
directly so it is a non-issue for future development) but should be.
