I suspect this is a problem with readline on windows.

Still present in the GTK3 version. Maybe a MSWindows related problem

When running PSPP in terminal mode on windows the first character of the
executed line carries forward to the following line. I can't seem to get around this

Examples:

PSPP> GET DATA
G

PSPP> DATA LIST LIST
D

if I type "/" sometimes the cursor will tab forward and allow me to enter a subcommand, but then the following line will render with a "p"

PSPP> GET DATA
GET DATA
> /TYPE=TXT
pTYPE=TXT

.1-5: error: GET DATA: Syntax error at `pTYPE': expecting `/'.

.1-5: error: GET DATA: Syntax error at `pTYPE': expecting TYPE.

I've installed two different versions on my Windows 7 computer and observe the same behavior. The version I'm currently running is PSPP-084-20150224
