Some more explanations:
db.connect + db.login determine where attribute tables of GRASS vectors are
stored. These settings have nothing to do with OGR import. If you want to
change the default database where GRASS vector attribute tables are stored,
make sure you have write access to this database.

Regarding vector import, if in doubt, check with ogrinfo if the datasource
and layer can be accessed by OGR. If yes, v.in.ogr should succeed.
