ack! StarOffice 5.2 => excel ???

Mmpf.  I happily exported from StarOffice 5.2 to all three excel 
formats it supports--5.0, 95, and 97/2000.

They all lost at least something.  97/2000 was closest, but it lost 
column widths, turned gridlines back on, and required me to open the 
formulas, insert the cursor, and hit enter before they calculated 
properly.  It also lost all of the protection information.

Is there some secret I'm missing?  I thought StarOffice was supposed to 
do better than excel at these conversions.
