Fixed with commit 3079a93f224d (Avoid letting data fields overflow in output and GUI.).

I agree with Ben. Such a function would be useful in other areas too.

I've wondered for a while whether we should have a way to format data in such a way that the width is only a "hint", that is, if the data cannot fit in the allotted space, we use more space than allotted. This seems suitable for situations like this.

Jill Covert reported:

I have been
unable to declare missing values. I can get into the form where I enter
them (doesn't matter which way--discrete or range), but once I hit okay--it
only saves an * in the field. Is this a known bug?--couldn't find anything
about it on pspp users info page.

and later:

I figured out my problem. I was trying to declare a missing value of '999',
but my variable width was only 1 or 2. Thus I would get * if the width was
only 1 and ** if the width was only 2. Those widths were automatic based on
what I uploaded with my csv file--those fields w/ no 999s made the widths 1
or 2--I'm sure you get the picture.
