from the "list" .. the given info in the shp file is ambiguous, so you 
get to choose.

The module wants input. The Tcl GUI window can't take input. 

You'll have to run the command from the command line, it is listed 
at the top of the output above:

v.in.ogr dsn=/home/helli/grassimport/obere_donau.shp output=n2k \
    min_area=0.0001 snap=-1 location=odast

when it asks you to type "list", type it in the shell window.

long term the GUI structure or the module needs to be fixed to 
address this.
