The bug is present not only in Import dialog, but also in Variable View of main window.

I found workaroud in localized dialog:
I must enlarge column "Type" – then I see "..." button in each cell of this column; and after clicking button, I can select variable type. Though, once enlarged, later I can make column shorter – clicking will continue to work.

So column "Type" should be sufficiently large, otherwise type selection will not work.

But this problem appears only in localized (Lithuanian) dialog. If I start PSPPIRE with LANG=C environment variable – I can change variable type.

I use PSPP 0.10.2-gf30cc8 (2016-06-1x)

Go File > Import...
At final dialog, it is impossible to change variable type by clicking cell at "Type" column and appropriate variable row.
