                Severity: 5 - Average
                  Status: Need Info
             Assigned to: None

                  Effort: 0.00



To reproduce the problem

0 Open psppire
0 Create a variable "a"
0 Change the format to string and keep the default width at 8
0 Switch to data view
0 Click Row 1 Column 1 and type "Grünkern"

=> Result: The sheet shows "Grünker"
=> Expected: The sheet should show "Grünkern"

Bug: Each Umlaut counts as two characters. Typing "ääääääää" yields

Tested on debian buster on master version as of 8th of July 2020. Same
behaviour for version 1.2.0.

Is this an expected last century behaviour? I would call it a bug.
