Wow!  That's a long time.  I don't know, off-hand, why it would
take that long.  Is the disk active during that time?  Is PSPP
using a lot of CPU time?  Is this in the GUI or the command-line
syntax version?

Increasing the workspace to a value larger than the size of your
file might help, e.g. SET WORKSPACE=300000.

I vaguely remember another Windows user reporting the same
problem.  I think that this must be a Windows-specific bug that
we will have to have a Windows developers take a look at.
