The GDAL/OGR module fails when I try to export ESRI shapefiles from GRASS vectors.

Is this an OGR problem, or is this a GRASS issue? It started happening recently, but I can now reproduce it reliably. I am running GRASS 6.2.3 on Windows Vista using all the latest updates from Cygwin (v. 1.5.25-7), from the Cygwin/X Project (v., and from GDAL (v. 1.3.1-1).

Thanks, John R.

I also get a similar error in the latest 6.3.svn release (built December 14) from the winGRASS project. After opening the PERMANENT mapset of the spearfish60 data, I ran "v.out.ogr input=roads type=line dsn=/shapefiles olayer=Roads". This generates the following error messages:

Invalid argument: can't _spawnl ERROR: Unable to start driver <dbf>

The module then exits. I ran this from both the text version and Tcl/Tk gui with the same result. My current Tcl version is

Status: newclosed

This issue seems to have been resolved in the winGRASS release of GRASS 6.3RC5. The dbf driver now works correctly.
