Yes. We tried to email you several times over the weekend, but  
somehow the address we had for you must have been wrong, or some spam  
filter swallowed it. The non-released faster version of  
Spreadsheet.pm had a bug.

Yep. Check out


which needs to be downloaded and copied to


overwriting the existing file, and then do a

/etc/init.d/httpd restart

This needs to go on all servers.

That would work. But the better idea is to use the fixed version of  
the non-released version.

Just for everybody: this is a bug only in a non-officially-released  
version of Spreadsheet.
