You are using the 6.1-cvs development version, correct? I broke this a
while back and have been meaning to fix/revert the change. It's fine in
the 6.0.x line.
Solution: don't use the GUI.
To start, from the shell prompt run "i.points groupname".
Issue: I changed the module to use G_parser() & make it into a normal
Temporary fix (not done yet): revert G_parser() code, add parser like
code to read arguements from the command line if given.
Outstanding issue: How to deal with interactive modules which require
keyboard input. Spawning xterms from the GUI is not a good long term
