I had a data set in geojson format where the geometry of the first feature is null. Apparently, this bothers QGIS at the point where no data can be displayed at all.

{"type": "FeatureCollection",
 "features": [
   {"geometry": null, "type": "Feature", "id": 983, "properties": {"NUMERO": 264 }},

Hello, bug triage...

still the same for QGIS 2.13 master. Whenever the first feature's geometry is NULL, QGIS opens the layer as a table (with no geometric column).
This is not an OGR problem because ogrinfo is able to find the geometries. I've added a sample file to make further tests.

When the first feature has a valid geometry and the second feature has a NULL geometry, QGIS is able to detect the geometric type.
