Yes you are right. The filenames contain date and time, too

Exactly. The "." is selected directly by KMM by default. Maybe due to my 
settings or the particular file format.

The problem is that at that point I am just not able to change it to "," 
because the modal message is already appeared and in place.

I supposed that it is a Windows "fault". Don't worry.
I will try to solve my problem understanding how to prepare correctly 
the csv file in advance. Maybe working on decimal settings on KDE, 
Libreoffice and Windows. Hope that this has been useful for the future.
