FS#739 - QCAD fails to open a DXF file generated by itself

QCAD does not manage to load an DXF file created by itself (presumably, I don’t remember excactly, could be the last 2.x version). When selecting File ⇒ Open on the file in attachment, QCAD shows a pop-up reporting the following error :
The file permissions are OK, there is no issue of disk space on the volume where the file reside or where the QCAD distribution is installed or at any other critical location. The problem does not happen on other files created with QCAD, so it appears to be data dependent.
The file causing trouble in QCAD can be imported in LibreOffice 3.4.2 w/o reporting errors (but that application does not provide the suitable methods / tools to edit this format...).
(1) Is there a way to activate debugging when reading in data from a DXF ?
