this is copied frome gmane.comp

hi wolf, 

I too faced the same problem, this problem happens only with POI generated 
Excel Documents, If I opened the POI generated excel document and made some 
changes, that file column count is taking very correctly.

fixed with bug 43901 (svn r634617)

Took a lot of convincing that something was wrong.
