FS#2249 - Can not open this file in 3.26.4, but in I can

This file is produces by .js script which some QCad user wrote for me. The script produce many dxf files which are ok, but this one can not be loaded to 3.26.4. ( is fine)

The file is not strictly valid DXF.

However, you can import it using dxflib which is more tolerant than the OpenDesign libraries:
- File > Open
- Choose "Filter: DXF Files [dxflib] (*.dxf)"

Ok, I understand. But I use qcad bbox tool to get dxf size which fails to load the drawing.
I guess there is something wrong in these script files. I have a drawing edited and saved in 3.26.4, then I use create_blocks.js to create blocks from entities in rectangles and then I use export_blocks.js to create individual dxf files from blocks. With it works fine and with 3.26.4 some exported blocks can not be opened. Would it be possible to review those scripts for some donation?
