[Gretl-devel] A few more small issues

I would like to report a few more small issues:

1)- When the edit data window is open, trying to open a new dataset or
clear the current dataset gives the error "The dataset cannot be
modified at present" , which I think a bit obscure. It took me a while
to understand the problem. Plus, saving works without an error. Can
gretl just close the window automatically since the current data will
be closed anyway?

2)- Running the RESET test with "squares and cubes", "squares only"
and "cubes only" adds the output to the model window just like other
tests do. Selecting "all variants", however, does not add. Also, I
think it would look nicer and more uniform to also label the added
output of "squares and cubes" (instead of just saying  "RESET test for
specification -").

3)- The possibility to omit a few observations at a time can be useful
in some cases, with something like:  obs != "İstanbul", "Ankara", ...
(Is there a way to add omitted variables by observation marker?)
