Default Data entry "+" results in "294" in XLS

Hello,

One of my friends encounters a weird XLS problem. Whenever a "+" is entered
in data entry, the result is converted to "294". When editing the cell later
on, I can "overwrite" the "294" with "+", so I do have a - time consuming -
workaroud.

When I open the XLS he created on another PC, the problem is not
reproducable.

Any idea what may be causing this ?
