Ben said this issue was more involved than expected.

It is not something that has "regressed" from the previous release so I think I think we can postpone this fix.

I tried it on git da42f941ea2e14fe2 and I can confirm that it does not work.
The variable view shows the variables but the data view does not show the cases after copying.

Hmm, certainly DATASET COPY is meant to work and has some tests. I'll take a look.

Frans Howelling also reported this:

DATA LIST LIST /area (F1.0) price (F12.0).
BEGIN DATA
4 1805
1 1945
4 1412
END DATA.
DATASET COPY WORK_A.
DATASET ACTIVATE WORK_A.
AGGREGATE OUTFILE = * /BREAK = area /price = MEAN(price).
DATASET NAME OTHER_1.
DATASET DISPLAY.
DATASET ACTIVATE WORK_A.

In SPSS:
- after the DATASET COPY command I see 2 files: *Untitled[] (active)
and *Untitled[WORK_A]
- after next command (DATASET ACTIVATE) I see *Untitled[WORK_A] (active)
- after AGGREGATE I see Untitled[WORK_A] and Untitled[] (active)
- after DATASET NAME I see Untitled[WORK_A] and Untitled[OTHER_1] (active)
while PSPP has only 1 file left at this point.
I tried PSPPIRE to follow the steps, but it I guess it doesn't honor
the DATASET COPY command.

psppire 0.8.2 in openSUSE Linux.

Then execute:
DATASET COPY MyNewDataSet.

Only structure of variables are copied: the is no cases in new dataset.
