    US-keyboard, but sometimes software changes it to a dutch keyboard  which
    is hardly used at all.

I wonder if the keyboard switching software is doing something wierd.  Do you find that
' gets mutated into ´ in other apps or just in psppire ?

I can´t remember seeing this behaviour before.  Maybe other users can confirm if they have the sae behaviour.

It could be.   This code comes from gnulib.  Maybe you could try hacking this line:
 sprintf (tmpl, "%.*s/%.*sXXXXXX", (int) dlen, dir, (int) plen, pfx);
at the bottom of gl/tmpdir.c -- if that fixes the problem, then we'll have to send a
patch to the gnulib maintainers.

I will try this tomorrow.

have fun.
