Some additional comments:

It should be noted that the IPCC data that originally started this error is not
the more common database type table. It is really a spatial grid with numrows x
numcols of data. (actually it is a set of such 2D grids, but that is not too
important here). Note that it does NOT have numcols of values on each ascii
line. It actually has only 10. So the numrows and numcols are logical values
not the physical values of the file format. (The only requirement is the the
product of numrows x numcols is the total number of values).

I would suggest that for ascii gis data, the preview should just display the
ascii exactly as it is saved in the file (with any of the various linefeeds
observed, just as standard text editors do). Kepler should only try to parse
the data into a table when it is declared a table in the EML. (I don't think it
is for the IPCC data?)
