Meimuna Kahf reported a problem when saving data as .sav file when variable
names contain german Umlaute like ä or ö. The bug report was here:


I could reproduce the problem on my Mac. The setup is:

MacOS El Capitan 10.11.6
PSPP 1.0.1-1 Application Bundle based on MacPorts Quartz version
PSPP 0.10.2 Application Bundle with Quartz has the same bug.
The problem does not show up in the default MacPorts 1.0.1 X11 Version.

To reproduce the problem:

a) Open a new file
b) Create a Variable Käse
c) Put in some data in the data view
d) Save the data as test.sav
e) Reopen pspp
f) Open test.sav
g) => The file does not open with error: Non Valid Variable Name K??SE

My guess is that there is some problem with the Quartz implementation and/or
localization settings in the bundle. The problem is the file write. I can
create and write
the file with the macports X11 version and then read this file with the Quartz
version. This quartz version is build with a custom glib/gio to circumvent the
mime handling problem in glib/gio as discussed here:


However that was not the case with 0.10.2. 

Thanks for reporting the bug!
