PSPP-BUG: Small usability bugs in variable view.

Hello, looking for simple alternatives to "R" to handle native SPSS files and better Linux support (the support and use of new SPSS 23 is bad) I found PSPP and it's great. It is also cross platform and will become the basic tool for sociological studies of my students.

Compiling the buil snapshot, I noticed that the GUI is built on GTK3 and thus brings some small usability problems in the interface.

It's annoying behavior of columns in variable view: width, decimals and columns. Now use the new widget GtkSpinButton occupying more space, and with the values of default width of the columns, the widget overlaps the input values.
I think it would be good to consider a fixed column width (minimum), you may have variable + the widget. -> 999 [- | +].

Show the indicator for columns (down arrow): alignment, measurement and role.  As used on the labels in the data view.

It is impossible to resize the role column.
It can be achieved by decreasing the width of the previous columns, until the column role does not exceed the width of the screen.

As a user recommend that developers impose a minimum width of column allowing the usability of the function in variable view (currently defined for the title, which in turn depends on the language)
