As in the subject: org.apachi.poi.ss.usermodel.WorkbookFactory, line 75.

In my opinion this should throw an InvalidFormatException since the latter is a traced exception, and "input file of unrecognised format" is probably an error that should be handled.

In r1696338 we changed the throw to InvalidFormatException() as this is documented in the javadoc section of these methods so it makes sense to throw this exception in these cases as well.
