There were a couple of strange things with the syntax you posted.

First, is that you've got variable names that begin with digits.  So
far as I'm aware, this has always been disallowed.  Also,  there are
some mutant whitespace in your data block.  

I don't know how you would have ever got that to work .... however, I
corrected these errors, and ran your code, and indeed, got a similar
result.  It seems that pspp doesn't like the fact that the directory
"resultdata" doesn't exist.  So I'll file a bug to that effect.  In
the mean time, you can work around this, by simply ensuring that
"resultdata" exists when the syntax file is run.

Thanks for the bug report.
