     You know, for output in PSPPIRE, the "correct" thing to do is
     probably to not write it anywhere, by default, until the user
     saves it explicitly with File|Save (and we'd want to prompt them
     if they tried to exit without saving).  That's closer to what
     every other GUI program does, and it would be the same behavior
     in Unix and Windows.

I agree.  As I'm sure you'll remember, the current way that the gui
displays its output is a quick and dirty hack re-using as much as
possible of the pre-existing output subsystem.
