Broken xls file
Sorry, I had thinking what attachment is public from AquaCluster report.
Opens fine with my vanilla builds, but fails with Fedora's -> the failure is most probably caused by one of our patches.
The problem is not caused by any of our patches. The file is misclassified as writer_MS_Works_Document. I am investigating why.

backtrace of loading failure
There is a problem loading the stream deep in sot. In the if condition in sot/source/sdstor/stgelem.cxx at line 407, nSize == 0, but nPage1 == -1, so StgEntry::Load returns false. But I have no clue why this apparently is not a problem in my debug build...
this is a 3.5.6 regression from the review patch d5345bfb40d6e33087fd053cc220308a2bc2945e,
the commit for fdo bug 53909 fixes this problem.
i'll add this and preemtively also the other 2 fixes in the upstream
3.6 branch for other regressions from that patch to the f17 package.
libreoffice-22.214.171.124-8.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
It still does not opened by 126.96.36.199-8.fc18 version of Libreoffice in Fedora 18. Do you plan add patch for F18 branch also?
F18 is already on 188.8.131.52 that should have it from upstream. Please upgrade and try again.
