[GRASS-user] Editing dbf, problem

I was trying to edit one of my point vector dbf files in the file  
PERMANENT/dbf.  I used the spreadsheet in Openoffice to adjust a .dbf  
file.  The STR_1 column originally read #1 %64 @"Cat. 64".  I needed  
the Cat. 64 for a label on my map so I edited the column to read just  
Cat. 64.  Now when I resize the size of the Map Display Window,  
everything freezes.  If I leave the map display window alone I can  
work with the project a little, but GRASS (or WISH) unexpectedly  
quits, usually sooner rather than later.  I tried to at the #1 %64  
with the quotation marks back, but this didn't help.  Can anyone tell  
what the problem is and how to fix it?  Since I am using Qgis to do  
the actual displaying (and it doesn't seem to have the problem) I'll  
be fine, unless I have to adjust something in GRASS.  Then I will need  
a back up plan.

Thanks for any insight that people may have.
