I have not spent much time with psppire yet, but in fumbling around I
managed to crash it :-)

Package: pspp
Version: 0.6.1-2
Severity: normal

The GUI is pretty fragile:

Launch psppire.
Hit <down>.
Click on "Insert Case".  Get obscure error message:

** (psppire:14579): CRITICAL **: psppire_data_store_insert_new_case: assertion 
`val_cnt > 0' failed

Hit <right>.
Click on "Insert Variable".  Application crashes:

psppire: src/data/dictionary.c:590: dict_reorder_var: Assertion `new_index < 
d->var_cnt' failed.
Aborted (core dumped)

I suggest psppire should be more robust against the user doing dumb things.
