oct2xls and xlsx file coruuption

I use oct2xls extensively to create XLSX files. Unfortuantely I have noticed
that under certain circumstances, I end up with file corruption when Excel
indicated the the file needs to be repaired. If I choose to repair the file,
it seem to get corrected but saving and reopenning produces the same error.

Here is the sequence of events
1. use octave to create several tabs with data in an xlsx workbook
2. open the xlsx spreadsheet in Excel, delete the summary tab if it exists,
sort the tabs, and recreate summary tab
3. add tabs to workbook with Excel
4. When I try an  open the updated spreadsheet I get the "Excel had found
unreadable content. Do you want to repair" 

I will try to distill down a sample that reproduces the error tomorrow.
Any thoughts where to look.
