Gosh, you're right.  I guess I missed the forest for the trees on
this one.

It's a line ends issue.  If, using GNU sed, you delete any
carriage return that is followed by a line feed, like so:
         sed 's/\o015$//' < ../data1pspp.sav > tmp.sav
then the result is just fine.

Somehow we're not setting our output files to binary mode on
Windows.  Don't see how it's going wrong yet, though.
