I think this bug is related to 15223 but I am logging it again because I think 
I have a bit more detail.
This appears to be one of those obscure bugs that only appears under certain 
circumstances.

I am reading an existing Excel workbook (excel.xls), amending some values 
(omitted from the test case) and writing out the resultant workbook (poi.xls).
In Excel creating the original workbook, I have entered two rows of numbers.
I have also defined a summation row. I declare a formula for a cell, copy it 
then :-
1)  paste it individually to any number of subsequent cells across a row
        the workbook is written out correctly
2)  paste it simultaneously to up to 5 subsequent cells in the row
        the workbook is written out correctly
3)  paste it simultaneously to more than 5 subsequent cells in the row
        the original formula cell is OK but the others have #REF! error
        and when the workbook is opened in Excel you get the error
            "File error: data may have been lost."

Test Case
---------
	String filename = "Excel.xls" ;
	FileInputStream  fis = new FileInputStream( filename );
	POIFSFileSystem  fs  = new POIFSFileSystem( fis );
	HSSFWorkbook     wb  = new HSSFWorkbook( fs );

	FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream( "Poi.xls" );
	wb.write( fos );
	fos.close();

Environment
-----------
POI   : jakarta-poi-1.11.0-dev-20030324.jar
Java  : 1.4.1 b21
Excel : 2002 SP-2
OS    : XP 5.1.2600
