           Summary: kst mixes up columns in some ASCII files!!!
           Product: kst
           Version: 2.0.0
          Platform: MS Windows
        OS/Version: MS Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: NOR
         Component: datasources

Data file to reproduce the bug

Version:           2.0.0
OS:                MS Windows

When reading some ASCII files, kst gets completely confused. This is very bad
as it gives no error message but starts mixing columns silently!!!

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
I'm going to attach the required data file to reproduce the bug. Then:
- open the unzipped file with the datawizard
- configure the datasource: ignore regional settings, var names in line 0, data
from line 1, custom delimiter=;
- load VAR1A against INDEX
- open the datafile in your favorite editor

Actual Results:  
Edit->View vectors, select VAR1A, scroll down to sample 234 and check against
line 235 in the editor (offset of 1 due to the line with field names): the
value is the same. Now look at sample #235: its value is completely wrong, as
that of subsequent samples, which all seem to be coming from column VAR1R,
starting from the same line!

Expected Results:  
Values are those read in column VAR1A.

OS: Windows 32-Bit, not tested under Linux.
When hitting reload, only samples 1 to 233 are loaded, stopping on exactly that
line causing trouble. Very strange....
