It’s fixed in develop, but haven’t added test data yet.

The bug looks to trigger with any XLS above ~15 megabytes. The big test file in the repo “GitIssue_184_FATSectors.xls” looks to be just below the threshold to trigger the bug. 😦

Each DIFAT entry describes 128 data sectors/entries at 512 bytes. There are 109 DIFAT entries in the header, plus optional DIFAT sectors elsewhere in the file. Each DIFAT sector contains 127 entries plus a link to the next DIFAT sector. There has to be at least one full DIFAT sector for the bug to happen. Thus, ((109 + 127) DIFAT entries *128 data sectors) * 512 bytes ~= 15 megabytes.
