Thanks for the bug report.

You  don't say which version you're using, but I haven't heard of this 
problem before, so perhaps it is something specific to Mac.

If you're using an older version, perhaps you should upgrade.  Alternatively,
you can always import your data by typing the syntax manually instead of using
the wizard.  Refer to the section "GET DATA /TYPE=TXT" in the user manual.

     In the Wizard, at the window were I must "select the first line of data", I
     cannot select anything.  Clicking on the window results in auto-scrolling 
     the last case.  I've tried using control-select and the data does not
     scroll, but still nothing is selected.  Actually, the whole window of
     delimited data seems to be selected (it is a blue-green color); when I 
     with "command-all" the window becomes white.  When I try to select the 
     line in the white window of data, the whole window becomes blue-green.
     The result in "Fields View" is always only one line of data--the variable
     columns are all there, but never more than one case.  When I've included
     headings/variable names in the first line of a text file, the import result
     is that the headings line is treated as a case.  I am unable to select 
     above selected line contains variable names."
     I really hope you can help me with the problem so I can use PSPP!  Many
