I'm working on a plugin which should make it possible to load a single dbf (or csv file) and fill an x- and y-column by clicking in a map. And after that: save the txt file as a point-shape file using those xy columns as geometry xy's.

I noticed that when opening a dbf file (just via open vector layer), I can edit values and add records in the attribute table view and successfully save the dbf.

But when opening a csv file, I can add a record (most of the time) and save it (though I see ERROR messages sometimes in cells).

But I can NOT change value's of table-cells. Every time I try to do that I get an error:
Errors: ERROR: 1 attribute value change(s) not applied.

I'll attach a minimum tab-separated csv file to this message to do some testing.
I work on a self compiled qgis b72b7b1 on ubuntu natty.

Hello, bug triage...

this is still true in QGIS 2.13. It seems to be an OGR problem as the CSV driver page states:
Deleting or replacing existing features is not supported.

I think this is an OGR bug and not a QGIS one. Could we close this one (after you have made a bug report on GDAL side) ?
