[GRASS-user] Problem with the tcl/tk GUI

I just installed the grass 6.4.0 RC4 *.rpm from 
on my OpenSuse 10.3 machine.

Within the nc dataset I opened the sqlite mapset and copied the the 
geology map to the splite mapset with:
~> g.copy vect=geology at PERMANENT,geology
Then I tried to show the attribute table of the geology map by using the 
tcl/tk GUI (the button in the lower part of the GIS Manager window). By 
clicking the button 'Show attribute data' the following command is sent 
to the GIS.m window:
 db.select table=geology 
database=/home/martin/GISDataBase/nc_spm_08/sqlite/sqlite.db driver=dbf
Note the driver option! This command fails with the error:
 Cannot open dbf database: 
By correcting the driver option to sqlite everything works fine.
By the way: v.db.connect -p geology shows the correct sqlite driver.
