Update of bug #17424 (project pspp):

                  Status:             In Progress => Ready for Test/Review  


Follow-up Comment #2:

The attached patch fixes this bug.  Turned out that calc_stats was always
adding a 50th percentile to the list of percentiles (whether we asked for the
median or not) if it wasn't already present.  In turn, dump_statistics was
dropping the last percentile (not the 50th percentile) from display if
calc_stats had added a 50th percentile.

I decided that we should just treat the median as the 50th percentile, and
then display it in the output table as "50 (Median)".  I think that this is
reasonable behavior.  It gets rid of a special case while fixing the bug.
