Can not add more that 1 skill point per skill to expert class

Description

Created human expert, added 5 levels, chose 10 expert class skills, can not get skill ranks to increment past 1. Repeated clicks of up spinner button will not increase above one. In Ubuntu cursor does not highlight up arrow on spinner button. I have been able to get a work-around by editing the pcg to increase ranks and decrease SKILLSREMAINING, save and then open. Spinner appears to work then.

For any class the system is forcing you to spend skill points for each level before allowing you to spend points for the next level. Another workaround is to spend all your points for each level in turn.

Where it can the system should automatically distribute the points as you are increasing the ranks. i.e. Move Climb up to 1, a point from level 1 is spent, move it to 2, a point from level 2 is spent etc.

In building an NPC alchemist4/expert3 innkeeper, I was playing around with the skill point build. I found that if you have a level with skill points unassigned, e.g., 2nd level with 5 skill points unspent, selecting a skill to increment with more than 2 skill points will reset that skill to 2 skill points, restoring the removed skill points to another level as unassigned points. While this mechanism is find for character builds, it would appear counterproductive for GM NPC builds.

Points are now automatically allocated to levels wherever possible. This means it is now possible to make say a 5th level character, select a skill and simply increment the ranks for the skill to get that skill to max. The cost will be distributed to the level selected first and then to higher levels if possible.
