I'm fairly sure this has been fixed in the stable branch.  Please reopen if this is not the case.

I suspect this might be a duplicate of bug #24115

I can't reproduce this, either on Debian GNU/Linux i386 or OpenBSD math.gcsu.edu 4.3 GENERIC#698 i386.

VARIABLES is misspelled (missing the "I") in your syntax, but it doesn't make any difference for me from an assertion-failure point of view whether I fix it or not.

I can't reproduce this.

When I run it with 0.6.0 I get a warning: "warning: BEGIN DATA: Partial case discarded.  The first variable missing was var1."

and the data file looks like:

VARIABLES var1  var2    var3
a b c 1
2 3 d e

The following syntax causes an assertion failure:

DATA LIST FREE TABLE /VARABLES var1(A10) var2(A10) var3(A10).
 SAVE  /OUTFILE=asdf.a.
