I have noticed that Spreadsheet::WriteExcel saves its spreadsheets in a
version of the Excel file format that is rather old by today's
standards, even though the file format is entirely compatible (the only
difference between the file format between some releases of MS Excel has
been a token that indicates the version of the file format).
So I'm guessing that MS Excel is automatically promoting the file to the
version matching the Microsoft software (Office 2003 or whatever you're
using) and tries to save that token when you close the file.
