Description Eileen Hurley 2007-07-17 08:20:26 UTC
We are having a problem using POI (poi-3) for Excel using Excel comments within
the file.
The existing template is opened and saves ok with no errors reported but when we
attempt to open the file (via Explorer) it reports an error "Cannot read file",
this happens in Excel 2000 and Excel 2003.

When the Excel Comments are removed it works fine, it also works if we remove
some of the comments. 
In all cases no Errors are thrown when writing the output stream to the workbook.

This can be reproduced all the time.
