The put_checkbox_items_in_treeview function should be called only
I would attempt to solve your problem with something like this 
(the following code has not been compiled or tested in any way):

static void
on_statistics_clicked (struct crosstabs_dialog *cd)
  GtkTreeIter iter;
  bool ok;
  int ret;

  GtkListStore *temp_store = clone_list_store (GTK_LIST_STORE (cd->stats));
  gtk_tree_view_set_model (cd->stats_view, temp_store);

  ret = psppire_dialog_run (PSPPIRE_DIALOG (cd->stats_dialog));

      /* Discard the original list_store */
      g_object_unref (cd->stats);

      /* Make the temporary store, the permanent one */
      cd->stats = temp_store;
      /* Discard the temporary list store */
      g_object_unref (temp_store);

Part of your confusion I think arrises from the fact that 
put_checkbox_items_in_treeview does two jobs:

1. It sets the GtkTreeView widget's state so it's suitable to
display checkboxes.

2. It also creates and populates a liststore, and sets it as the model
for the treeview.

Perhaps these two jobs should be done by separate functions?

     I have a question about put_checkbox_items_in_treeview ().
     on_statistics_clicked() is the function that runs the stats dialog.
     The current version below is what I have to make the stats dialog box
     work correctly when the user presses the 'Cancel' button.  It mostly
     works. The call to put_checkbox_items_in_treeview() is there to restore
     the default after the user does anything but press 'Continue'. (I'll
     have to fix that so I don't restore the default if the user presses,
     say, 'Help', but that isn't the question I have now.)
     Here is the function:
     static void
     on_statistics_clicked (struct crosstabs_dialog *cd)
       GtkTreeIter iter;
       bool ok;
       int ret;
       ret = psppire_dialog_run (PSPPIRE_DIALOG (cd->stats_dialog));
       if ( ret != PSPPIRE_RESPONSE_CONTINUE )
           for (ok = gtk_tree_model_get_iter_first (cd->stats, &iter); ok;
           ok = gtk_tree_model_iter_next (cd->stats, &iter))
          gtk_list_store_set (GTK_LIST_STORE (cd->stats), &iter,
                              CHECKBOX_COLUMN_SELECTED, false, -1);
           put_checkbox_items_in_treeview (GTK_TREE_VIEW(cd->stats_view),
     Now, without the call to put_checkbox_items_in_treeview (), the
     function behaves as expected and clears cd->stats. When I come back to
     the stats dialog, I can re-select whatever checkboxes I like. Groovy.
     But after the call to put_checkbox_items_in_treeview (), upon
     returning to the stats dialog, I cannot select any checkboxes. Except
     for the default checkbox, they are all empty, and I cannot change
     their states, no matter how frantically I click with the mouse.
     So is this a problem with put_checkbox_items_in_treeview (), or
     am I misunderstanding something?
     Also, I have tried different approaches to accomplish this task,
     and until this approach, all of them resulted in the user being unable
     to change the checkboxes on the second call to on_statistics_clicked().
