[GRASS-user] error in d.vect command in grass6.3.cvs??

The  syntax of the d.vect command has changed slightly between version

6.2.1 and the latest 6.3.cvs versions (as of january 30  and later). In

6.3.cvs, I cannot execute succesfully a vector file display, nor from

the gis.m shell nor from the command line, whereas from 6.2.1 (and

former 6.3.cvs versions), the vector files display well.

The d.vect command of both versions and an example of error messages is

given here:

version 6.2.1

d.vect [-vacix] map=name [type=string[,string,...]]

[display=string[,string,...]] [attrcol=string] [icon=string]

[size=integer] [layer=integer] [cats=range] [where=sql_query]

[width=integer] [wcolumn=string] [wscale=float] [color=string]

[fcolor=string] [rgb_column=string] [llayer=integer] [lcolor=string]

[bgcolor=string] [bcolor=string] [lsize=integer] [font=string]

[xref=string] [yref=string] [minreg=float] [maxreg=float] 

version 6.3.1

d.vect [-vacix] output=name map=name [display=string[,string,...]]

[attrcol=string] [icon=string] [size=integer] [type=string[,string,...]]

Sorry, <layer> is not a valid parameter

Any clue or fix out there?
