The Text is representing /p as a new line when I think it should be ignored.
See QCAD PDF I am unsure what this represents in ACAD. /pxqc;

Out of all DWG's I'm working with 80-90% contain these "xqc;" and similar character sequences, mostly at the beginning of text lines. And such text is always vertically misaligned. This is really annoying as I'm rarely creating new drawings myself from scratch, I'm doing my parts of the work started by other people who work in AutoCAD and GStarCAD.

Here is the example of such file.

This problem is still present in the version 3.11.0 (professional).

These are control sequences which are not supported by QCAD (to do with text block alignment).

You might simply want to strip them using Edit > Find/Replace:
Find: \pxqc;
Replace: [nothing]

Yes, but shouldn't they be eventually supported some day? And how about correction of vertical alignment? I know about DWG standard nightmare, but after all we need to work on these files and this is yet unavoidable.

I think it is possible to automate this task with scripts (I think there is such a thing in QCAD). I think I can make such a script myself. At least I'll try to.

Unfortunately, it's not realistic to implement all of Autocad's features in QCAD. Especially when it comes to text formatting, only the most commonly used subset of features is currently supported by QCAD. This will be extended, but it has never been the primary goal of QCAD to clone Autocad. DXF/DWG support should always be seen as a 'best effort' import.
