[GRASSLIST:7758] cross validation on v.srf.rst. Does it work?

Hi all,

I'm trying to use the cross validation option on both
v.srf.rst and v.vol.rst. However I'm getting some
strange results for the slovakia rainfall data set. 
1) I ran v.srf.rst as follows: 
GRASS 6.0.0 (slovakia3d):~ > v.surf.rst input=rain3d
zcolumn=int_1 cvdev=cv1 -v mask=mask at PERMANENT

Which wrote a table with difference values on

2) Then I created another table without the gauging
station #122 (which I called rain3d_2) and
interpolated using the same parameters as above:
GRASS 6.0.0 (slovakia3d):~ > v.surf.rst input=rain3d_2
zcolumn=rain mask=mask at PERMANENT elev=vsurf1_wo122

AFAIK cross validation removes one point at a time,
interpolates using the remainder points and computes
the difference between the interpolated value at a
certain location (i.e. station 122) and the real value
(record at station 122).  Accordingly if I query the
raster map vsurf1_wo122 at the coordinates of station
122 and substract the interpolated value to the real
value I should get the value that was written to the
cross validation table for station 122, so I query the
GRASS 6.0.0 (slovakia3d):~ > r.what input=vsurf1_wo122

The real value at station 122 is 798 mm; according to
these values the difference is: 1057.96-798 = 259.96.
The value that was written by the v.srf.rst module on
the cross-validation table is -5.31.

Can someone tell me what's going on here?
