XLS file that shows weird initial view and missing auto-line-height/word wrap
When opening a .xls file, the initial display is somewhat garbeled. The first line does not employ word wrap initially (resizing the window or modifying data does fix this, although then sometime the row numbering does not properly refresh).
Furthermore, the word wrap and automatic line height in the last row, second column does not apply. The document shows fine (initial word wrap and automatic line height) with Excel.
Tested on Ubuntu 14.04 with libreoffice 1:4.2.8-0ubuntu2 (default sources).
The file was created using xlwt, find reconstruction instructions in wrap_line_height.py .
Possibly related to
. Feel free to redirect me to one of these.

Python xlwt script to generate problematic xls file
It is a bit better in 5.0. No hidden cell contents, but the word wrap is still a problem.
You might want to try 5.0 yourself and confirm the improvement: http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/Linux-rpm_deb-x86_64@46-TDF/
