An oddity that's popped up, but I can't repeat the effect in another spreadsheet.

My spreadsheet (freshly loaded) has 3 particular cells:
B5              completely empty
C5              33520
D5              =SUM(B5:C5)

D5 currently wrongly displays 0, and F9/recalculate doesn't change this.

Now, if I set B5 to 0, D5 changes to 33520 (at last correct!), and if I ^Z to undo the change, D5 remains showing 33520. Likewise, changing C5 makes D5 update correctly, or indeed if I retype the SUM() expression. (The only way of getting the wrong result back is to reload the spreadsheet from disk)

So, I have a spreadsheet showing a wrong calculation result. Thankfully, 0 was a pretty obvious error.

Any thoughts?

The relevant row from the contents.xml file contains:

<table:table-row table:style-name="ro1"><table:table-cell table:number-columns-repeated="2"/><table:table-cell table:style-name="ce2" office:value-type="float" office:value="33520" calcext:value-type="float"><text:p>33520</text:p></table:table-cell><table:table-cell table:style-name="ce2" table:formula="of:=SUM([.B5:.C5])" office:value-type="float" office:value="0" calcext:value-type="float"><text:p>0</text:p></table:table-cell><table:table-cell table:number-columns-repeated="1020"/></table:table-row>
