Java source to replicate

When opening an xls file that contains a background image, modifying the xls and then saving, I get an invalid xls file when I open in excel 2007. Excel gives the error File error: data may have been lost.

The excel file opens but the background image is lost.

This does not happen with XSSF formats.

I have attached test case to replicate.

I have tried this with 3.8-beta3 as well as 3.7 without success. This used to work in POI 3.1.

This problem should be fixed in trunk.

Please try with a nightly build - see download links on http://poi.apache.org/
or build yourself from SVN trunk, see http://poi.apache.org/subversion.html
