           Summary: dirfile data source poorly handles error conditions.

         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kst kde org
        ReportedBy: matt truch net

When there is a problem with a dirfile, currently kst silently ignores most problems, causing confusion for the user.  It would be better if at the very least kst popped up a dialog warning the user that certain vectors could not be loaded etc. because of an error(s) in the Format file or missing raw files etc.  In the case of a malformed format file, it would be nice if kst (getdata) would be able to read data from entries that are formed correctly.
