I tested this with pspp version of 2018-07-07.

(start gdb)
select csv file
next ....
in the preview change numeric to string and the program suddenly ends.

See my gdb output:

(psppire.exe:816): Gtk-WARNING **: Could not load a pixbuf from /org/gtk/libgtk/theme/Adwaita/assets/bullet-symbolic.svg.
This may indicate that pixbuf loaders or the mime database could not be found.

    • (psppire.exe:816): WARNING **: PsppireDialog PsppireVarTypeDialog has no title

Assertion failed!

Program: C:\Program Files\PSPP\bin\psppire.exe
File: src/data/case.c, Line 476

Expression: caseproto_get_width (c->proto, case_idx) == var_get_width (v)

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.
