No, they are completely different. The v.digit version available
in Tcl/Tk GIS.m is C + Tcl/Tk written by Radim & Glynn.
The Vdigit that is used in the wxPython GUI is C++ + wxPython
written by Martin.

You might also try the QGIS vector digitizer to edit the GRASS
data layers. Several posters seem to enjoy that route.

probably not.

steps used?

for me on Linux it works:
[x] New map
new vector map name=  test_map1
Display commands   =  d.rast elevation.dem

whole command looks like:
  v.digit -n map=test_map1 {bgcmd=d.rast elevation.dem}
