Attached is the crash report if it helps.
Thanks, I've looked into this, but I'm still stumped.
Taking my cue from your "I have Chinese on my system also" I created
a Desktop directory with Chinese characters in its name, and put in
there a gretl data file with Chinese characters in its name -- on a
Macbook Air running OS X 10.10.5. Then I tried opening the data file
in question via "/File/Open data/User file..." And the file opened
without any problem.
This was using gretl 2019a, but I can't think of anything remotely
relevant that could have changed in quite a while.

context of, or sequence of events leading up to, the crash, please
You're running OS X 10.11.6, higher (though not far off) the version
I'm on: maybe there're a relevant difference in that respect. I'll
see if I can try the experiment on newer OS X.
