Test program exhibiting the bug

DateUtil.isCellFormatted(Cell) returns true for a numeric cell that's formatted as ".0000".  Tracing through the code, this is because DateUtil.isADateFormat(165, ".0000") is returning true.  That's obviously not a date format; maybe date_ptrn3 needs to be made more strict?

I've enclosed a simple program which exhibits this.
