I think this bug is about datasources reporting errors, in the general sense. It is true that apart from kstdDebug() calls in the source, there is currently no way (at least that I know of) to get feedback from the datasource, which once again may be a file format problem and not a coding problem.
I'd suggest giving the datasource a way to write in the kst log output, and the ability to raise an error flag. One good example of this is what happens when loading a datasource with unresolved symbols: the sign in the lower rright corner, which you can click on to get to the log, is very convenient.
