Thanks! That appears to have done the trick. It gives the warning:
GNU pspp 0.4.0 (Wed Nov 29 12:28:04 PST 2006).
PSPP> GET FILE = 'demo_data_set_SHORTER.sav'.
warning: demo_data_set_SHORTER.sav: Unrecognized record type 7, subtype 16
encountered in system file.
but commands like LIST and FREQUENCIES appear to work properly.

Thanks for attaching the system file. It seems that SPSS 15 is
now indicating the "code page" of the system file in a slot where
it previously just had essentially a constant value. PSPP
doesn't expect that and so gives an error.
If you are able to apply the following patch to the source code,
and then rebuild, it should fix the problem:
