What doesn't match? Projections, regions, else?

Again, there is information missing:

Are you sure they cover the same area? Are they in the same projection? What 
do the v.info and r.info say?

You have to be specific if you want to be helped.

That *may* mean they are in different projections. What do "gdalinfo
your_geotiff" and "ogrinfo -so -al your_shapefile" say?
