    Veusz has a serious shortcoming: it doesn't support commas as decimal separators. When all other software including major spreadsheets do and use (according to system locale), it's virtually impossible to go from one to the other without wasting time converting files.

    However, with integer values, Veusz is usable. In fact, Veusz is more stable, but SciDAVis is easier to use, but VERY unstable.

    Previous commenter: how about reporting that as Veusz bug? The CSV format is unfortunately hard to support for all users due to the fact that is so poorly standardised, so it's useful to get feedback. A program needs to be able to read CSV files even if they were produced in completely different locales.
