Test case XLS demonstrates error when parsed

When opening the attached file in Excel 2007, 0.0 is evaluated to be equal to both 0.0 and -0.0. However, in POI, 0.0 and -0.0 are not equal. This causes IF to make the wrong decision.

When parsing the file in POI, I get true for the first comparison, false for the second.
