a. I think that the 8000 pixels is too big. I don't really have any
prove for that. Just my small experience that files created with such a
resolution will be big and heavy for processing. If you don't really
need it you could reduce its size.

b. Yes you have either to give the full path of your shapefile or to
navigate in the subdirectory where your shapefile is located and run
form within it the v.in.ogr module.

In this "special" error you mention I think you have a "blank space"
between the filename and the extension ".shp". So the "dsn=" parameter
should NOT be like

"dsn=CORNELIUS_ddpolygons_None. shp"

but it should be like
