Column mis-alignment

Simon Pratt asked on October 15, 2015

We use tab separated files for various reasons. Mostly this works well, however if the first column for any given row is blank, that entire record is “left-shifted” for as many columns as were blank, which causes data alignment issues with all the following columns.
Is there any solution for this? (besides adding an identity column to every data-set)

Thank you for the sample you’ve sent.
We have managed to reproduce this issue.
The fix will be available within the minor release 2.121 (ETA Nov 10).
