No, I meant 6.4, but checking 6.3.1.svn, 'dist' units are decimal
degrees as well.

Sorry, I'm a little confused; from the changeset, it appears that v.distance
was being corrected to able to report in meters, as lat and lon are not 
equally scaled. So it seems that a bug in v.distance still exists, then? 
Shouldn't r29568 have fixed this?
