OK, I tried the CVS version 
(grass6.1.cvs-i686-pc-linux-gnu-23_04_2005), and importing the data
works up to around 3580000 points. At that point, memory usage is very
high, the mouse cursos is not responsive, and the system freezes with
significant disk activity (swapping). Eventually, the process is
killed by the kernel. I run this version on an AMD Sempron processor
with LInux kernel 2.6.10. The command line I entered was
v.in.ascii -zt input=<input> output=<output> x=1 y=2 z=3

A sample input line:
-2714620.000000|  1477320.000000|       13.290000

Note that I did not test the dbf driver (yet). i will do so shortly
and report back on that.

Many thanks
