When you open a file, gnumeric has this nice option of automatically detecting

Sounds odd.  I have not seen anything like that.

The newer versions can open the file, but do not autorecognize it ?
Content recognition is done in layers

    if (a matching suffix is found &&

If the loaders are working, then the probe routines are available.
