[GRASS-user] winGrass 6.4 - d.vect hangs when displaying labels

I'm trying to display labels on a map for a quick visual display to
ensure the correct data is used. However d.vect hangs when using
either WinGrass 6.4.1 RC1-1 or 6.4.SVN r45245-1 with the wxpython GUI
on winXP.

This issue can be replicated using the Spearfish data set as follows

Start winGrass with wxpython GUI.
Add the vector layer map "archsites".
Open the "archsites" vector map properties to open the d.vect window
Add the labels to the display on the appropriate window tabs.
Command will be d.vect map=archsites at PERMANENT display=shape,attr
type=point,area,face,centroid,line,boundary attrcol=str1
Click apply and the d.vect command hangs the winGrass session and the
only option is to close the windows and start all over again.

Is this a known problem? Is there a work around?
