I pushed a fix for this bug as commit 55418b678b8 "INPUT PROGRAM: Don't break out of INPUT PROGRAM on interactive error.".

If I start pspp in interactive mode and type the lines:

PSPP> input program.
PSPP> loop #i = 1 to 10.
PSPP> compute i = isdk.

(Note that the last line is erroneous.)
An error is correctly flagged.

However, when I then type in the correct line
PSPP> compute x = #i.

I get the error message:
error: LOOP without END LOOP.

It doesn't seem to be possible to continue. I have to abort and start over.
