Excel crashes when printing or "print previewing" document created with Excel2007 writer and setOffice2003Compatibility

I've created a formatted document using the Excel2007 Writer with setOffice2003Compatibility(true). I noticed I could not print the document or even print preview it; doing so causes Excel (or Excel Viewer, which I normally use) to crash. The document is otherwise perfectly created.

I personally don't need the Office 2003 compatibility option but I thought I would point it out for people having problems printing.
