That's right, the property map points to the graph you passed to the
function, which is the graph view gt.GraphView(rlf, directed=False), *not*
the original graph rlf.

(note that this is not a problem, you can use these maps with the
original graph)

Allright, I was a little distracted.

This is useful for knowing where in the graph the motifs have

Yes, you can get a subgraph of the original graph by constructing a
GraphView and filtering out the nodes which do not belong to the motif:

mask = g.new_vertex_property("bool")
m = motifs[0]
vmap = vertex_maps[0]
for v in m.vertices():
mask[g.vertex(vmap[v])] = True
m_g = GraphView(rlf, vfilt=mask)

# the edge and vertex properties of m_g will correspond to those of g

I make something slightly different, based on your proposition:

mask = g.new_vertex_property("bool")
m = motifs[0]
vmap = vertex_maps[0]
pmap = vmap[0]
parray = pmap.get_array()
for v in m.vertices():
mask[g.vertex(parray[v])] = True

It works! Wonderfull!

Thank you very much.
