Hi Zbyszek

That's right, v.digit is of not much use in it's actual form. The issue you
mention is not the only problem. This has been discussed a bit in both
grasslist and grass-devel. Also check the bugtracker for other complaints on

v.digit needs a volunteer who'd fix it. Nobody by now.

However there's QGIS which has a very nice plugin for digitizing Grass
layers, very similar to v.digit but more functional, because panning (mapped
to space key, cool) and zooming (mapped to middle mouse key, not really
comfortable IMHO) is possible during digitizing. Works well for me.

If you want to give a try you'll need to build QGIS with Grass. Also if you
want to read Grass rasters as backdrop maps you'll need to rebuild your
GDAL --with grass first, or better build a separate Gdal-Grass plugin
(better, yet I still don't know how to accomplish that :( ; I hope somebody
will kindly answer my help request I post yesterday to gdal-dev list).
