I wonder if you're referring to an issue that I've discovered, which affects
4.5 and 5.1 under Windows 7 and Windows 7 - I haven't tried my Unbuntu
version yet.

I created a file in Excel, filling the background of the whole sheet with a
colour.  I opened it in LibreOffice, and it looked like this:
<>   - i.e. some of the
cells were not coloured.  I then coloured the background of all cells in
LibreOffice and saved the file again.  Excel shows the background as being
all green (other than the boxes for the answers), whereas LibreOffice has
additional white areas.

Our users have a mixture of versions of Excel and LibreOffice, and I wanted
to use the Excel file format because I want to password-protect the sheet
(and Calc told me that I can't do that with an ODS file).
