Looks like you are importing DEM or last/first return LiDAR data?
Use this before v.in.ascii to connect the database:
db.connect driver=dbf database=$GISDBASE/$LOCATION_NAME/$MAPSET/dbf/ -p
Then use the -b flag in v.in.ascii to prevent topology if it is a big file. If
it is a DEM/LiDAR data, I have not had to use the -z flag. Depends on the data
and what you want to use it for.
Hope that helps
