[QGIS 2.10.1 / d20c5b7 / Windows 7 64 b]
Since upgrading to 'Pisa', I cannot add delimited text layers.
Specifically (using the attached example):
1) click on "add delimited text layer"
2) dialog opens, browse to file, fill in the infos (cf. 2nd attachment)
3) the layer does appear in the layer list but (a) no points are created, (b) QGIS does not ask about the CRS, and it is not possible to set it using right click|set layer CRS; (c) when double-clicking on the layer to go to the properties, the "style" and "labels" tabs are empty (totally blank).
The CRS issue is reminiscent of #13582, but that may just be me...
Fix delimited text layers set to unknown geometry type if first row has
null geometry (fix #13749)

In fact it is nearly fixed: if the first line of the file (after headers) happens to have missing values for X and Y, no points are created -- even if all the other lines in the file do include X and Y information. There is an easy workaround, of course (make sure the first line of the file does contain geographic info), but it would be nicer, I'd say, if the system was able to recognize that there is X and Y data in other lines.

Sorry for not having been clear.
Using a version downloaded today (= the windows 64b installer from QGIS website,
QGIS code revision cd9d645)
1) If the file does have a first line with missing coordinates -- ex. file_that_does_not_work.txt, attached. Point features are not created, the file is attached as a table.
2) If the first line of the file has coordinates (and even if there are missing coords further down, cf. file_that_works.txt), point are created.
In other words, similar files with lines in different ordres do not give the same result...
