--- Comment #2 from Dan <> ---
(The system is Vista SP2, running OO 3.4.1)

How to reproduce:

- Start Open Office Calc.

- Save workspace as "CrashTest.ods"

- From Task Manager kill Open Office (soffice.exe/bin -- one of each).  This
simulates a system crash/power loss/Win Update reboot.

- Double click on the saved "CrashTest.ods" in Explorer.

- OO puts up a message that recovery will occur -- allow it.

- When the Calc window comes up, don't touch it -- just wait about 10 seconds.

- Calc window closes and OO puts up a message that recovery will occur -- from
now on the sequence will repeat.

If the file is opened with Excel it will be reported as containing errors
(which doesn't happen if recovery has not occurred this way).  The "recovery"
is corrupting the file.

If this were just an occasional problem it would be one thing, but it's easily
reproduced -- any "recovery" damages the ods file.
