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).
4    1805
1    1945
4    1412
AGGREGATE OUTFILE = * /BREAK = area /price = MEAN(price).

- 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.

Then execute:

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