Inserting rows breaking formulae

I have a sheet which has many formulae which link to an external workbook. e.g.='[out.xlsx]Giving'!$C$5

I insert some rows at the top of this workbook,
ws.Cells.InsertRows(0, 15, True)

However instead of leaving these absolute formula references alone, the formula is changed to reference $C$20. Which shouldn't happen, and thus breaks the workbook.

Is there a way to get Aspose.Cells to handle this situation. It does all the non-external references in formulae perfectly well.
