PSPP-BUG: Weird Interface Interactions when Switching Between Windows

Hey everybody,

(Using Linux Mint,) I've noticed that when typing something a slot of a table, it isn't really there until one presses Tab, Enter or one of the arrow keys. When only using PSPP, this doesn't really matter, but when switching between programs (by pressing Alt+Tab for example) not only will the data in that cell be lost, the user will need to re-select a cell.

I'm completely new to PSPP and don't know how this is handled in other Software (such as SPSS), but as someone who is used to using Excel and Libre Office, it was really jarring needing to re-type whatever I didn't submit by pressing enter when switching to another window (to look up the values that I need to type for example.

If this was an intentional design choice, I apologize for bringing it up.

(also, no idea if this is the right place to mention this but in the FAQ-"Can I use PSPP at school/college/university)"-section, a space is missing between "software" and "package".)

Thank you,
