This is surprising because this case is unittested and works.

KFilterTest::test_block_read ends with
which calls
KFilterDev dev(fileName);
on a plain-text file, and reads from it.

Did you debug it a little further? What happens when trying to load a plain-
text file? Wrong size? Garbage data? ... ?

I added a new unittest for a larger read in one go (readAll), in case it's an 
issue that only occurs with larger data (like we found in 9d04e4186f13,
in the case of writing without compression), but that test passes too...
