Thanks for the report, working on it.

Interestingly, the test script for ods often works fine for me.
You can try to cd to some temp directory, and then do:

io_ods_testscript ("oct")

Sometimes it gets confused and rather than zip up the ods file contents, it zips up the entire tmp directory.

FYI It can take a while before this is fixed; summer holiday is close.

will create the sheetnumber (if it doesn't exist yet) but no cells are written into it, as long as there is no cell range explicitely specified.
