sample ods file with column width

When converting a file to xlsx format from the command line, the column width is lost.

First noticed when trying to bach convert xls (SpeadsheetML2003) files to xlsx  (SpeadsheetML2006). But this is also true when converting ods to xlsx. 

This is the sample command line 

/Applications/LibreOffice/LibreOffice.app/Contents/MacOS/soffice --headless --convert-to xlsx test_col_width_convert_lo.ods

this is the output :
convert ...convert/test_col_width_convert_lo.ods -> ...convert/test_col_width_convert_lo.xlsx using Calc MS Excel 2007 XML

i can't confirm this on LO4.3.0.3

can you check if this still occurs for you, or if it's fixed?
