I guess it is not because of PSPPIRE itself, but because of some underlying library version (GTK?)

I can reproduce only in openSUSE Leap 42.3 Linux with older GTK 3.20.10.
I can not reproduce in openSUSE Tumbleweed Linux with GTK 3.22.25.

I tried this on MacOS with git version a901596a2cd78660dcf9 (Nov. 25th) with the Means dialog. I cannot reproduce this either.

I cannot reproduce this problem.

Has anyone else experienced it?

PSPPIRE 1.1.0-g0f447c in openSUSE Leap 42.3 Linux
allows to select multiple variables, but it works only once, i.e. this feature stops to work after moving selected variables into right side of any dialog (e.g. in Means dialog, into Dependent list).

Even if I press Reset button in dialog, I still can not select multiple variables again.

I also never can select multiple variables in right sire of dialog, even if I re-open dialog with remembered selection from last callback.

See video where each mouse click is visualized by red circles.
