Follow-up Comment #6:

The situation is ....

System files no longer get truncated.  This is good.

Your test shows that the system behaves as you intend, but not as I expected.
 I expected the syntax

 get file='foo.sav'.
 save outfile='foo.sav'.

to run without error, whereas your test expects it to produce an error.  This
syntax runs without error under spss as does the slightly more useful

 get file='foo.sav'.
 compute y = x.
 save outfile='foo.sav'.

In any case, I imagine that most gui users would expect to be able to: open a
file, add some data and/or variables, click "Save" and have the new data
written back to the existing file without error.
