I have posted this a while ago, no one answered so I try again.

BTW what is the correct way to report bugs for Kst?

I am using 2.0.8 on Windows but also verified that this bug exists on Linux.

My csv file looks like this

#time, valuea, valueb
2014-10-23 16:42:23, 73, 42

I can easyly use the first line as column headers.

# is set as the comment char

Now the file is created by a logging thread, which will everytime it is started just write the line with the column headers. So it is repeated multiple times in various locations of my ASCII file.

When I create plots from such a file, everytime the "header" is repeated after the first time, the date gets interpretet as 1.1.1970. This makes it quite hard to get new users to use KST since they need to zoom to the right protion of the data in order to see something useful.

In short, I would expect all lines starting with a # being ignored by kst. Once exception: the line with the column headers. There I would suggest just to remove the comment char.
