I tried with our mingw build and it happens there too. I can't debug
it because any recent debug mingw builds from me won't start. An older
non debug build showed that problem. I'm trying again to get a windows
build but my hopes are very low. I have never been able to get a
working windows build.

To test it you can use the formats.xls or even better the matrix.xls
which shows that it seems to be only related to some numbers. I
haven't seen a system behind them yet.

It would be good if I won't be able to get a windows build soon that
someone with one (or a mingw debug build) could have a look at it.

Thanks a lot,
