Follow-up Comment #21, bug #53459 (project octave):

Thanks for testing, I'll look into the new <<Testcase3.xlsx>> file.
>From what you write in comment #19 it looks to be due to unicode issues; that
is a weakness in octave itself rather than the io package. But we'll see.

I just fixed writing new sheets to your original 500V_SHORT.xlsx file; turned
out I had most of the bookkeeping right, but I never had hit xlsx files with
chartsheets and pivottables etc. (although I regularly use those at work - but
I don't quite need let alone invoke Octave to analyze hours spent on projects
by my colleagues). In the end it only required minor fixes.

Another issue is that writing data into existing files screws up
xl/calcChain.xml; I have no idea why, maybe I'll look into that later.

Oh and I'll try pushing all the new fixes to sourceforge again; it's grown
into a nice stack of csets right now :-)
