this is the problematic file

I have a little xlsx file made with MS Office, which takes about 15-20 seconds to save in LibreOffice. It basically has a SUM formula, some formatting and numbers.

I also noticed that the previously small file becomes gigantic (550K) after saving. For example, empty worksheets have a very big xml file in /xl/worksheets/.  Even if a row is empty, a <row> tag is created for it. Thus, 65536 empty rows are written in the xml file. (Note that this behaviour may probably indicate a bug, because the maximum number of rows supported is one million.)
