..some of which are notoriously nasty! Such as the one where the two
first columns somehow gets the same name so that when you save, you
lose the original contents of the first column. (This is definitely in
Rsept for PC, but I suspect it isn't specific to that, and certainly
noone has been doing any debugging of that part lately).

I gave up using data.entry in teaching for that reason, but it really
is a pity because the basic idea of having the spreadsheet-like
interface is very good.
