You can prevent the error with:

--- vector/v.in.ascii/in.c~	2010-09-04 16:31:59.000000000 +0100
+++ vector/v.in.ascii/in.c	2010-09-21 08:57:12.000000000 +0100

 	if (driver) {
 	    G_message(_("Populating table..."));
-	    if(db_close_database_shutdown_driver(driver) == DB_FAILED)
-		G_fatal_error(_("Could not close attribute table. The DBMI driver did not accept all attributes"));
+	    db_close_database_shutdown_driver(driver);

db_close_database_shutdown_driver() is incorrectly reporting errors on
Windows. v.in.ascii is the only module which checks the return status,
so it's the only module which is affected.
