I pushed a fix to master as commit 00175c601a93 "data-parser: Use data-file error types for data-file errors."

-unavailable- reported an error message like this from PSPP:

../FILE.TXT:19771350: warning: DELETE VARIABLES: Quoted string extends beyond end of line.

The "DELETE VARIABLES" part is potentially confusing, since it reports the name of the command that caused the data to be read, not the DATA LIST command that specified what data to read.

(p666@free.fr didn't report this as a bug but asked what "Quoted string extends beyond end of line" meant, so it probably isn't appropriate to CC this bug to him/her.)
