Thanks very much for the fixes.

IMHO, it makes more sense if the current subsample reported at the
bottom of the main window is independent of revisiting old model
results for further testing. Can gretl do such tests by automatically
switching back and forth between subsamples without opening any
distracting warning windows? Moreover, if the user actually decides to
change the current subsample and wants go back to an earlier model
subsample, this can be facilitated by adding a new entry for this in
the "edit" menu.
