Please send the patch.

This version deals with actual single-sheet BIFF crypto, which was not
previously working because the FILEPASS is in the different place. In
a sense this patch is a bug-fix, because there's no way the average user
knows if a file used XOR crypto or the later more secure stuff. I guess
it still won't make 1.2.x though :(

Your patch is in 1.3 now.  If there are no problems in the next
month I'll apply for 1.2.6

BTW If you have such files and can't find the password, I also announced
a Free Software version of those XL password finders you see advertised,
on my source code page

Lovely thanks.
