Okay.  I compiled 0.6.2.  But it has the same crosstab bug I reported
before for 0.6.1.  If I do a crosstab on split data, then in the second
part of the split, it reports the total number of missing entries rather
than the number missing just for that part of the split. (Possibly a
variable was not reinitialized?)  I had hoped that I could find a
version where that bug had been fixed.
