Certain spreadsheets can not be saved in Microsoft 2003 XML format (.xml),
many errors occur on the terminal, followed by a pop-up saying the file could not be saved.

The common denominator seems to be that the spreadsheet originated in Google Docs, exported to "Open office spreadsheet" (.ods) format.   This spreadsheet seems to operate normally in other respects.

I will attach a sample file exhibiting the problem, and a typescript showing all the error messages on the terminal.

You might be wondering *why* anybody would want to save in MS 2003 xml format.
In my case, I was trying to find merged cells, following the suggestion at
http://user.services.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=32085#p147003

The error messages begin with:

Failed to load module: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gio/modules/libgiolibproxy.so
runtime error: file file:///opt/lodev3.6/share/xslt/export/spreadsheetml/table.xsl line 433 element param
xsltApplyXSLTTemplate: A potential infinite template recursion was detected.
You can adjust xsltMaxDepth (--maxdepth) in order to raise the maximum number of nested template calls and variables/params (currently set to 3000).

Bug is still there in 4.4.2.0.0+
Also confirmed the bug is in 3.6.7.2 
(3.3 did not support MS 2003 xml format)

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:

1. Download the attached test.ods demo file and open it
   (run LibreOffice from a terminal so you can see error messages)

2. File->SaveAs; select "Microsoft Excel 2003  XML (.xml)" format in the drop-down

3. Delete the ".ods" suffix from the defaulted file name

4. Click OK

RESULTS: Many error messages on the terminal, followed by a pop-up error

EXPECTED: The save to succeed.
