     I just uploaded a Cygwin version of the latest pspp pre release..

I haven't been able to download it.  I get half the file, then it
aborts.  On the second attempt it says that my "download limit" is
exceeded and I have to wait some random period before retrying.
(I probably wouldn't be able to do much with it anyway, because my
cygwin installation is rather fragile)

     New issue for the users and not mentioned in the readme, you need
     administrator rights to use to advanced features form the GUI.

That's strange.  Do you know why this is so?

     For the developers:
     - does the gui write temporary files somewhere other as in /tmp ? It looks
     as if the program crashes on this when it doesn't have write

If I recall correctly, you can change the directory where tempfiles
are put by using the environment variable  TMPDIR.  Apart from that,
pspp{ire} has to be able to write to the current directory, in order
to create the journal file and output files.

     - there are several issues with the dll's
      1)  cygpsppire-0.dll is build and cygpsppire.dll is used
      2)  cyppsppwidget-0.dll is build and used, But the program seems to look
     only in the current directory for it

Does setting the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable not work?
