Annoyances are bad, but I'm not sure I understood this issue.  It sounds
like CSV files aren't recognized somewhere, but I don't understand where.

to know what you mean by "CSV," because I know I frequently create "CSV"
files in LibreOffice Calc with tab delimiters.

Also, what OS and version of PSPP are you using?
