t.rast.aggregate unnecessaryly slow with limited number of maps

I was having some trouble with t.rast.aggregate which was much slower than running the same operation directly in r.series, making t.rast.aggregate almost useless (see performance comparison below).

I tracked the problem down to the usage of the z-flag in r.series.

Please find attached a patch for, which adds a check for the number of maps to be opened in r.series and uses the z- only if there is a danger for hitting a limit for open files (fix number of 1000 in the patch).
