This is similar to the approach I tried originally. I then tried the
approach with the GtkTreeIter because using clone_list_store caused
the following problem, which I don't understand:

Using the method you mentioned above, on_statistics_clicked() opens
the dialog and will not let the user select anything. The default is
selected, and that's how it stays.

The code I tried first is below. It suffers from the same problem,
but later in the process: If I hit 'Cancel', then return to the dialog,
I can no longer select any of the checkboxes.

Notice the only difference between what you showed an the approach
below is that latter replaces cd->stats after the user presses
'Continue', whereas the former code replaces cd->stats right away,
then undoes that if the user hits 'Cancel'. So it seems the trouble
has something to do with cd->stats being overwritten by the temporary
liststore, which somehow makes the checkboxes immutable.

Anyway, here is the code I tried originally:

static void
on_statistics_clicked (struct crosstabs_dialog *cd)
  GtkListStore *liststore;
  int ret;

  liststore = clone_list_store (GTK_LIST_STORE (cd->stats));

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

      g_object_unref (liststore);
      g_object_unref (cd->stats);
      gtk_tree_view_set_model (GTK_TREE_VIEW (cd->stats_view) , GTK_TREE_MODEL 
      cd->stats = liststore;

I don't know. Your explanation suggests put_checkbox_items_in_treeview
isn't the source of my trouble, so I'll leave that decision up to you.
