Test file that should be sortable after import

Now the we properly support the standard, "Only cell anchored" the xls importer should default to this for improved compatibility.

No idea how to read anything from this binary format.

If anyone wants to do this, check sc/source/filter/excel/xiescher.cxx and look for ScDrawLayer::SetCellAnchoredFromPosition (the last argument must be true if you want to move+resize with cell).
