after updating R from 3.3.3. to 3.4.0 i cannot import spss-data files 
anymore. for the european social survey (europeansocialsurvey.org) i get 
this warning:
re-encoding from CP1252
Fehler in levels<-(*tmp*, value = if (nl == nL) as.character(labels) 
else paste0(labels, :
factor level [3] is duplicated
Zusätzlich: Warnmeldung:
In read.spss(file, use.value.labels = use.value.labels, to.data.frame = 
to.data.frame, :
//filepath/ESS7CH.sav: Unrecognized record type 7, subtype 18 
encountered in system file

using the package foreign does the same.
