No wonder it hasn't been maintained for the last 17 years!  I had contact 
with an author who is working on refactoring the oleo spreadsheet source 
code and he told me it has huge functions in it with huge state tables and 
when things get broken inside projects like that it's difficult to locate 
the defective code to repair it.  Must have been Microsoft Windows 
programmers writing that spreadsheet originally.  I was told had Microsoft 
had all unterminated loops in the source code for Windows XP properly 
closed the whole operating system would have had no problem running in 
640K of memory.
