Description Till Crueger 2012-06-17 07:17:10 UTC
When opening an empty CSV file, the file does not get opened correctly. Instead binary data is inserted into the file and also saved on the Harddisk. Here is an example how to reproduce the problem:

> touch empty.csv
> libreoffice empty.csv

Click on "Text CSV"
The import dialog shows random garbage.
Click abort.
> cat empty.csv

The file has been filed with random binary data.
