I fixed this by pushing commit f0eacba971b "psppire-data-window: Only allow saving a file with at least one variable."

Starting up PSPPIRE and then immediately selecting File|Save produces the following error: "SAVE is allowed only after the active file has been defined." This is, at best, confusing to users.

Reported by eric thivant, via Harry Thijssen, with help from Michel Boaventura.
