- the merge menu is incomplete. all the choose A/B/C everywhere, or choose A/B/C for all unresolved ... are missing.
- the open file dialogue does not show any file at all but only directories.
Are these known bugs? Any work around for this?

Yes it is broken. I don't know of any bug reports, but building version 1.8.3 from git at least gives me the files in Open dialog back. Here's how I did it:
sudo apt remove kdiff3 sudo apt build-dep kdiff3 git clone https://github.com/KDE/kdiff3 cd kdiff3 git checkout 1.8.3 mkdir build && cd build cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$HOME/opt/kdiff3 make make install
After this I can run my own copy of
~/opt/kdiff3/bin/kdiff3. You may want to tweak your
CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX to match your needs.
NOTE: don't try to install git
master (at least as of
c2704be2e44): it's broken even more than the stock Ubuntu's version (crashes on startup due to multiple typos and some other errors).
I suggest that you file your own bug report (if you too fail to find an existing one).
