It's probably a bug in pyExcelerator:

http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1596642&group_id=134081&atid=730643

There's a patch by John Machin, 

http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1618443&group_id=134081&atid=730645

and the problem should be fixed in subversion.
