I have attached screen shots of the output and the data set. The screen shots 
are output of the same table run in PSPP 8.1 and PSPP 8.3. The table is PSPP 
8.3 is clearly wrong.

The procedure I used in the menu is Analyze > Descriptive Statistics > 

We have not had problems until PSPP 8.3.  We are having the same problem in 
both 32-bit and 64-bit.

I have told my class to go back to PSPP 8.2, though I have 8.1 on my school 
computer. We are getting the same results in 8.1 and 8.2.
