Description kpalagin 2007-01-25 08:12:33 UTC
When I try to open attached "problem.xls" file I get "General Error. General 
input/output error".
Excel opens the file just fine. What is even more interesting, after I open 
(without saving) that file Calc opens it just fine too - apparently Excel 
modifies the file even if you do not explicitely "Save" it.
