     I assume you already know this but in case you don't we are not able to 
import / load any sps file that contains any special German characters in the 
values. The output is "bad character U+FFFD". The same occurs with the Euro 
Symbol ("???"). This occurs on a Windows 7 installation and a LINUX 
installation. These are valid UTF8 files.  This would appear to be a regression 
since the import of the same files works with 0.7.8.xxx.
     We have tried creating the sps file with all imaginable encodings (i.e. 
UTF 8, UTF 16, CP 1252 (which is standard for local installation), etc.) with 
no resolution of the problem. At the moment we must use ASCII encoding which 
has no national characters or replace all special German characters prior to 
the import.
     The RC 2012-03-20 and 2012-04-11, installed on Windows 7, crash when the 
import file is run.
     In the PSPP Version pspp-master-20111111 (0.7.8.xxx) the import works 
without problems but this version is not stable on a (German) Windows 7 
     I can supply example files if desired.
