John--thanks for review and noticing the incorrect comment.

Adam--adding you on CC in case you want to verify that your original test case now works.

A fix has been checked in to the CVS repository

I haven't tested it, but it looks ok, and seems to simplify things in sys-file-reader.c

There's an inappropriate comment at the top test, which appears to have been pasted from another test.

Attached patch fixes this bug and underlying problems in the sys-file-reader (which are really more important than the reported bug), and adds a test to make sure that the problems don't recur.

On SAVE (and related commands), /KEEP=X Y Z ALL should reorder the dictionary, moving X, Y, and Z to the beginning in that order and retaining the relative positions of the other variables.  Currently this provokes a syntax error.

I don't know whether this should be fixed by changing parse_var_set_vars() to always allow ALL at the end of a variable list, or by adding a special case to keep_variables() in get.c.
