I've confirmed this today on Win XP Home using 0.9.1
downloaded from [1]. *Any* command in the GRASS Toolbox,
which requires selecting an input or output column of a DBF
table, fails to let user select the column - either a blank
dropdown or a 'cat' column alone and all other discarded.
Can anyone say if this is due to QGIS or GRASS on Windows?
