It's not a bug in POI, it's a bug in Excel!

The same problem was bugging me. And like the reporter of the bug said, the
problem only occurred before the file was saved.

I am generating XLS files from a struts action, and the problem with renaming
sheets in Excel only occurred if I opened the action's output directly in excel,
not if I saved it first.

After a while this pattern became appearant: any XLS file with square brackets
in the name (like any temporary file from MSIE, but also "my file [really].xls")
has the problem that Excel will behave strange if you change the name of a sheet
within it. The workaround is to give the file a name without brackets.

Unfortunately, you don't have a choice which name MSIE picks for a temporary
file when you open a downloaded file instead of saving it first.
