your data only has discrete values 1,2,3 … 10. Only the histogram bins which
range e.g. from [2.333, 3) (2.3333 <= x < 3) are empty. This is correct as there are really no
cases which have values in that range. 

The histogram x-axis labeling is now a continuous range. For your specific problem you probably
would like to have exactly 10 bins, however the number of bins is selected just based on the data
via sturges rule (see and adapted slightly to fit to the
x-axis tick scaling.

You should see the probably desired behaviour when you do a bar chart. 
Could you maybe try a bar chart?

The attached pdf file shows the bizarre translation of DV var levels
into the histogram graph.
All the 10 continuous levels of the dependent variable soctrust are
occupied, but the histogram shows unoccupied classes. The diagram is
misleading to me.
I then repeated the example with three three-groups and got the same

To me this looks like a bug.

I work with the latest version dated 26 May, 2015, under windows.

I can send you the data file, if necessary, though it is big.
