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 installation.
