I've gone through the code for tracking this issue. So far, I think Kst
uses SkipEmptyParts while identifying columns so that only two columns are
listed. But while reading data from each line, it uses a different method
than QString::split. It scans for the separator character and converts each
token to a double value. Here, the initial comma causes a problem as the
code doesn't skip blank fields.

I think we should have the same logic for recognising columns and while
reading data. What if we use KeepEmptyParts while scanning for columns? I
believe things will then work fine even if lines have missing fields.
