Wrong overwriting behaviour with GRASS algorithms

I tried to use v.clean via the GUI in QGIS 2.10 on a polyline shapefile.
I selected an existing .shp as Cleaned layer target and got the warning 'the file already exists, do you want to delete ?' What i understand as 'do you want to over write it ?
Uncheck the box "Open the file after executing ..."
Launch the process, everything seems to go as it should
But when i check my file it hasn't been overwrited.

I can confirm that the overwritting does not work indeed. For me in master, it comes up with an error indicating the output file was not correctly produced.

Hello, bug triage...
I've made some tests on your bug and I can confirm that the problem is not related to v.clean only.
If you try to overwrite an already existing file with any GRASS Processing algorithm, there will be no overwrite.
I have made a PR to add the required parameter (--overwrite) to v.out.ogr and r.out.gdal commands.
