Problem with excel tables (listobject)- array formulas and auto fill


We have an issue with aspose.cells for java version 8.6.2 and excel tables.
When the table contains an array formula, the autofill feature re-produces the formula as a ‘normal’ formula instead of keeping the array characteristic.

I have attached a small class and excel file that demonstrates the issue.
We currently have to post-process the filled in tables to reset the array formulas as a workaround. I hope this can be resolved in the library soon, so we can drop the workaround.
