SpreadSheetPlugin problem in 1.0.4?

Guenther Fischer
Hi I' added http://trunk.foswiki.org/Tasks/Item1406 to describe the
problem and give an example, but on server foswiki.org with 1.0.0 the
error doesn't happen.
Using http://trunk.foswiki.org/Tasks/Item1406 or the full example in
Sandbox http://trunk.foswiki.org/Sandbox/SpreadSheetTest - it fails as
on my side 1.0.4.

Could the right guy take the task?

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Regards
Günther Fischer
