Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new spreadsheet using Calc
2. Insert something in the first cell
3. Turn Track changes on
(in windows using File->Properties: Record changes)
(in ubuntu using Edit->Changes->Record)
4. Insert something in the second cell (notice the text having a red border, showing that it has been added lately)
5. Save as XLSX
(when manually checking the archive XLSX, it does contain the tracked changes attributes, revisions directory in /xl/, so tracked changes setting is saved in the document )
6. Close calc
7. Open the saved XLSX
Expected behaviour: revision history appears (the second cell appears with another color, as it has revision history associated), the document editing starts with track changes on, as the document was saved with track changes turned on
What happens instead:
The track changes option is turned off, when saving, the whole revision history is lost, and not saved in the resulting XLSX, thus causing data loss.
Thanks for reporting!
I can reproduce this behavior using Linux Mint 14 x64 with LibreOffice Versie 184.108.40.206 .2.2 (Bouw-id: 4c82dcdd6efcd48b1d8bba66bfe1989deee49c3); Dutch UI.
Therefore I mark this as NEW. I left the bug priority as default (normal medium).
Normal: it does prevent you to make high quality work (share documents etc)
Medium: default priority.
For me not reproducible with LO 220.127.116.11, Win 8.1
Can anybody still reproduce this issue or was this already resolved in the meantime?

Screenshot of a test file in Excel and Calc
Seems to mostly work fine, although I had to explicitly enable the display of tracked changes in Excel.
