It would be good to know if the other SPSS users having problems with 
previous versions still have problems.

The data list command format in the sps file now looks like this:
   FILE = "/home/jens/data/bromar.1.3.txt"
   FREE ("|")
   RECORDS = 1
   / _DoubleEntry(F1) id(F4) sex(F1) error(F1) km(F3) kmgrp(F1) age(F2) 
     dectime(F6.4) decgrp(F1) runok(F1) .

for the example bromar file. Notice, that the {} are no longer there.

The import fails for the example file included with EpiData, probably because of the RtL text in one record. Either that or there is a vertical bar in the data somewhere.
