Hi all, I am having trouble getting v.in.sites working.  I have a 3d 
sites file from GRASS 5.3 that has seven different floating point 
attributes.  When I use v.in.sites, I get the following error:

v.in.sites input=pinatubo output=test

GRASS_INFO_ERROR(661,1): Default database is not set
Input format: dimension: 3   strings: 0   FP:7

I just want to use the normal dbf that grass uses. Do I need to set up 
the database table before importing the old format?  Shouldn't that be 
done automatically for me?  When I run v.info on the new file I get:
v.info test
ERROR: Cannot open old vector test at ianmacmillan on level 2

After running v.build, I get:
v.build test
WARNING: coor files of vector 'test at ianmacmillan' is larger than it 
          be (14 bytes excess).

I must be doing something stupid here.  Any ideas?
