Empty rows from XLS are not properly created when exporting to CSV

I’m trying to export an XLS file to CSV format, but the empty rows from the XLS are represented as empty lines in CSV, when they should have been a list of commas.

This is a sample code:

Workbook book = new Workbook(new FileInputStream("C:\\temp\\test.xls"), new LoadOptions(LoadFormat.EXCEL_97_TO_2003));
BufferedOutputStream writer = new BufferedOutputStream(new FileOutputStream("C:\\temp\\saved_from_aspose.csv", true), 2048);

for (int i = 0; i < book.getWorksheets().getCount(); i++) {
	book.save(writer, SaveFormat.CSV);

We are using Aspose.Cells for Java, version 7.1.0.
The export works as expected on version 2.4.3.

Please advise.
Thank you!
