In version 2 $SheetX.$A$1;$SheetX.$C$1 is a valid reference for a named
reference (Ctrl+F3).
In version 3 only ($SheetX.$A$1;$SheetX.$C$1) is valid.
Both syntactical variants are incompatible to each other.
See for
further reference and example file.

I think, that in OOo3 the concatenation operator is a tilde. After entering it
with semicolon it is converted automatically to tilde. So it should be

But the problem remains, that a tilde is not converted to semicolon when saving
in ODF1.1 format, and the other way round, a semicolon in named expressions is
not converted to a tilde when importing an ODF1.1-document.

I have used OOo3.0 and OOoDEVm37 on WinXP.
