Loading vector does not behave properly

If I add a vector from GRASS plugin>Toolbox>Browser, with double click or right click -> add to map, I get individual topolayers (1_polygon, topo_point, topo_line, topo_node).

In some installation it even crashes QGIS.

Probably the same issue: from QGIS browser, I get a double entry for grass locations (one as a folder, one as grass layers). The first does not show data, the second does not allow the loading of the whole layer, but only of individual topolayers.

Has something changed in GRASS vectors? I do not think there are changes in the plugin.

When loaded at the end of an analysis, with "Show results", the behaviour is correct.

QGIS cannot display 'whole' GRASS vector (e.g. lines + points, different tables) in one layer, it can only display one type+table combination in one QGIS layer.

Most probably, in the version you are referring to, there were added virtual topological layers which are confusing you. From QGIS 2.12, the topological layers (which may be useful for debugging or topology demo) are switched off by default and may be enabled in GRASS Options > Browser > Layers > Show virtual topological layers.
