I can see it with LO 126.96.36.199 (Win7 Home, 64bit), but I do not have OO and therefore could not test it with OO. I am wondering why only parts of the Russian text seem to show this mistake. But if you open this file with MSO 2007 then you get the same result.
@Sasha: Do you maybe have an explanation for this or/and can you confirm this, too?

Excel 2003 opens the test file just fine

I do not have access to a machine with MSO 2007, but MSO 2003 opens the test file just fine.
A screenshot of MSO 2003 is included.
Maybe MSO 2007 has the same bug too :-)
I'll test the latest git (today or tomorrow) and include more screenshots.

Yesterday git still shows the bug.
reproduced in 4.0.1 on Fedora 64 bit and Win XP 32 bit
This file is in format of Excel 95. It contains Russian text not as unicode, but as ANSI Windows cp 1251 encoding. It is one-byte encoding. And looks differently on different locales. On Russian Windows it looks correctly, on another - not.
IMHO this file generated by some old program. If it is 1c then needed upgrading to new version. New version has no such problem.
Possible solution: use Excel to re-save in format of 2003 or more new.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
*Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (4.4.1 or later)
*If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
*If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System
Please DO NOT
*Update the version field
*Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
*Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo";
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword

The intrigue is that it has a wrong encoding with the native Excel 95 Russian version.

Thanks for notifying, I guess I didn't read the last comment carefully.
Let's set this to NOTOURBUG then.
