File to reproduce the problem
Resave attached file (~13Kb) as XLS from LO Calc 3.5.5 or newer (including 3.6beta2). Result would be ~1.3Mb.
Original file has reduced heights for all rows after row 42.
In original XLS it's stored as 'DefaultRowHeight' record and a few 'row' records for non-empty rows (some of the first 42).
LO Calc saves it with different value for 'DefaultRowHeight' and million of 'row' records.
LO Calc 3.5.3 saves it without this problem.
Workaround: change height of all non-used rows to default one.
52029 could be related to this one.

Should be fixed for 3.6.0 RC2 by reverting the problematic commit.
@Noel Could you please have a look at this problem? We did not yet revert it for 3-5

NEW due to all the duplicates and Markus Mohrhard's comments.
I am getting huge XLS files when saving spreadsheets as XLS with spreadsheets
that previously were similar size or slightly smaller in XLS form than in ODS
Now the XLS file is well over 50 times bigger than the ODS file!!!
This is with V 184.108.40.206 on WINDOWS.
